Please note the video didn't work fully during this session but the sound is clear.
We're all currently facing different pressures, some of which may result in higher levels of stress. We have seen an increase in reported domestic abuse and people may find themselves in situations that are unsafe. For people living with HIV this may increase due to HIV stigma and a range of other issues.
In this webinar we provide advice, resources, tips and tools to help you stay safe during the lockdown.

Accessing services and COVID-19 update
Many of us are currently unable to access clinical and community services and may have concerns about getting medication, viral load and STI tests.
The lockdown has meant many of the community services where we get support have closed or moved online. Here we provide advice, resources, tips and tools to help you understand what services are available, how to access them and what you can do to support yourself and others.
We also give a general update on what we know about COVID-19 and HIV.
