UK; National standards for peer support
By David Rowlands, Jul 3 2017 08:27AM
The Standards were developed by a Steering Group of people living with HIV, representatives of NGOs who provide peer support for people living with HIV and of the British HIV Association (BHIVA), National HIV Nurses Association (NHIVNA) and Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA). Targeted consultation was undertaken with groups of people living with HIV in London and Liverpool, the youth group leaders of the CHIVA Summer Camp, and with individuals from across the sector. From August to September 2016 the standards were then out for open consultation through e-forums including UK-CAB and NGOs across the UK.
