FFLAG launches support booklet for friends and families of people diagnosed with HIV

FFLAG is proud to launch the latest booklet in our support series. It has been written by parents whose children have been diagnosed with HIV and they have heartening news to share. When someone living with HIV is on effective treatment, they can have a normal life expectancy and do not risk passing on the virus to a partner or anybody else.

There are many resources for people living with HIV. This booklet is a resource for anybody dealing with their emotional reactions on learning that a friend or relative has received this diagnosis. We particularly hope anyone who has been diagnosed with HIV will give this booklet to their friends and family to help them understand their condition and reassure them that they can lead an ordinary life.

The booklet can be downloaded from FFLAG’s website or a copy will be posted on request to anyone in the UK who would prefer the printed version.
