HIV Home Testing Kits

Dear all,

Yesterday we were on the Roberto Perrone show on BBC3Counties radio talking about why we feel the home testing kits now on sale may not be suitable for all when testing for HIV. We feel without appropriate support this could potentially have serious consequences for some due. Listen again on the following link, we are on from 2hrs 19 mins http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02p67ls

Thanks as ever for your support, hope to see you on our open day on 06 June, all welcome !!

Hi all,

Listen to our member Blessing today on the BBC3 Counties programme “Shrink Wrapped” talking about her diagnosis and the subsequent diagnosis of her youngest daughter following the collapse of her marriage. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02c9w79 We are on from 34 mins, following the interview with Blessing we talk about late diagnosis and the need to get tested regularly to avoid passing on the virus and of course harming your own health.

Don’t forget our Stand Tall Get Snapped Exhibition is still open at the North Transept of St Albans Cathedral until 05 December and we will be in the St Albans Market tomorrow for World Aids Day plus a street collection throughout the City too. At the Christmas cabin you can enter a raffle to win a 40″ TV as well as a host of other amazing prizes too.

There is also a free live music event at the Clock Tower in St Albans on Saturday 06 December from 11 to 4pm featuring a host of live bands to raise funds for us too.

Hope to see you at one of the events, help us keep helping Blessing and her family as they continue to live with HIV

Thanks as ever for your amazing support

You can listen again here, we are on from 1hr44mins and 38secs.
