More information and advice

If you’ve just found out you have HIV, there may be lots of things you want to find out about.

As well as talking to the staff at your clinic, people at community organisations, or other people with HIV, you might want to do some research by yourself.

We publish information about many aspects of life with HIV – you can find all our resources, including factsheets, booklets and more detailed information on our website at www.aidsmap.com/resources.

If you’re interested in staying up to date with the latest news in HIV, in particular research published in scientific journals, you might find our news services useful. You can read the news we publish at www.aidsmap.com/news or you could sign up for our free email bulletins at www.aidsmap.com/bulletins.

THT Direct (0808 802 1221) may also be a useful source of support, information and advice to you. It is open Monday to Friday, from 10am until 8pm. Calls are confidential and you can talk to advisers about the situation you are in, how you are feeling and any questions you may have. They can also advise you on what support services may be available to you near where you live.

i-Base, an HIV charity and treatment activist group based in the UK, provides personal answers to HIV treatment questions. Find out how to do this at http://i-base.info/qa/
