Exercise and active living can improve our physical and emotional health and help build our resilience and confidence.
Positive Living: Our new programme is a physiotherapy supervised group based on individualised exercises and educational support with HIV, general health and physical activity. The purpose of these classes and support sessions is to help address the physical, mental and social health related challenges associated with HIV, medication side effects, complex health needs and ageing.
