Jo Josh

Jo was diagnosed with HIV in 2008. Bringing skills gained in 30+ years in journalism, public relations and crisis management to the HIV sector, she joined the British HIV Association (BHIVA) as Communications Officer in 2017. Her insights and perspectives as an HIV-positive person helped to extend the depth and breadth of medical and mainstream reporting and, during COVID, were central to translating treatment guidance into plain English. A committed activist, she has supported the UK-CAB Steering Group for a decade, was a BHIVA Trustee from 2019 to 2023, volunteers for the National AIDS Trust and is a Positive Voices speaker for Terrence Higgins Trust (THT).
