HIV Women’s Seminar 2019

The annual HIV Women’s Seminar 2019 will be held on Friday June 21st at Sorrento in the Park, Auckland. Exploring the current landscape of HIV in New Zealand, we look forward to a wide array of speakers from the medical and healthcare community, researchers and more . As always we will have people living with HIV sharing their personal stories with the audience. Visit this web page regularly for updates and a complete schedule coming soon.

The seminar is an annual event and is open for healthcare professionals, people living with HIV, social workers, counselors, health promoters and others working in the HIV sector.
Each year we are accredited with nursing CME credits, CPD points for dental professionals and professional activity points from the Midwifery Council of New Zealand. We are in the process of obtaining the CPD and midwifery activity points, and look forward to having the same accreditation this year. CME points are confirmed.
