Phoenix Workshops for newly diagnosed individuals

A positive HIV diagnosis can create a lot of questions and uncertainty. Our Phoenix workshops give you valuable information that will help you on your HIV journey including how HIV affects your immune system, what your CD4 and viral load counts actually mean and some of the latest treatment options. You’ll be able to connect with others in a similar situation, ask questions and discuss pressing issues around disclosure, sex and relationships with counsellors, physicians and peer workers in attendance.
