More information and advice on daily health issues

Other resources on this website that you may find useful include NAM’s series of information booklets. These are available to read online, to download as PDFs, or to view in a PDF reader. Many HIV clinics and organisations in the UK also have copies of the print editions of some booklets, so you could ask them for a free copy. Or, you can contact us on 020 7837 6988 or email info@nam.org.uk to request copies.

You may want to sign up to NAM’s e-bulletin, HIV update – a fortnightly HIV news bulletin summarising key developments with links to more detailed articles.

The HIV charity, the Terrence Higgins Trust, runs a helpline called THT Direct, which may 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. The number is 0808 802 1221.

THT’s website www.myhiv.org.uk has information on living well with HIV.

NHS Choices is the UK’s biggest health website. It provides health information on most of the topics covered in these webpages. A lot of advice here – although it’s written for the general population rather than specifically for people living with HIV – will apply to you, especially about healthy lifestyles.
