New BBV Website for Lanarkshire

New BBV Website for Lanarkshire

The Lanarkshire Blood Borne Viruses Network have now launched their new HIV and Hepatitis website www.LanarkshireHIVandHepatitis.org. The launch of the website on 23rd June 2014 will support on-going work across Lanarkshire on BBV prevention, testing, treatment and care and will also add to the many awareness raising activities that are part of World Hepatitis Day (28th July 2014) and World AIDS Day (1st December 2014).

The website will provide information on all three Blood Borne Viruses – HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C for the general public, professionals and people affected by HIV or Hepatitis and will also include information on local and national services.

A key element of the website will be the ability to access online learning modules for people with all knowledge levels on HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Information, resources, news and events will also provide the platform for people to be informed of training and education opportunities and to hear about the many different areas of work and projects across Lanarkshire that aim to prevent, educate and support those affected by a blood borne virus.
