Please note that this event is designed to cater for the needs of people living with HIV under 30, along with people born from overseas through both our GenNext & PANA Program. 

Have you heard about the new HIV injectable treatment? Would you like to know how it works and where to access it? What happens if you missed taking your medication? Perhaps you want to know more about the long-term effects of HIV treatment? Or maybe you just want someone to explain to you how HIV treatments and U=U works?

Join Dr. George Forgan-Smith on a one-hour zoom webinar when can you find out the answers to these questions. Dr. George will also be answering a number of questions submitted by our community. Please note that you can submit a question through the RSVP link below.

In addition to this, there will also be a Q&A in the end of the session where you can ask Dr. George a question related to HIV treatment & care.

This event will be facilitated by one of our Peer Navigators, Emil Canita.
