The Positive Speakers Bureau (PSB), which is managed by Positive Women Inc., is very excited to be launching the ‘HIV Essentials’ online course.

The aim of the course is to provide accessible, accurate and up-to-date information on HIV prevention, treatment and stigma. The course is aimed at people working in the health sector and as an educational tool for the wider community. Coupled with a speaker from the Positive Speakers Bureau, the PSB is offering a unique, engaging and comprehensive learning package.

The online programme was developed by the Positive Speakers Bureau in conjunction with Marshalls eLearning, with contributions from people living with HIV, and others with many years of experience in the HIV sector. The medical content has been approved by Auckland Infectious Diseases Clinician, Professor Mark Thomas. The course is funded by the Ministry of Health.

This is a free course and qualifies for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points and educational credits by some NZ professional bodies.

There is an assessment component to the course. Those who successfully complete the assessment, will receive a Certificate of Achievement.

The course sits on the Positive Speakers Bureau website
The website includes an online resource library and is where you can also book a positive speaker.
