TORQUE is a new program from Positive Life NSW for people who have just been diagnosed with HIV.
It is a two hour monthly evening program for people to talk about their diagnosis, ask questions, get connected with services and meet others going through the same thing. You can contact Positive Life for more information on 02 9206 2173 or by email .
The next meeting is Tuesday 21st June.
You can also call Pozhet for information about New Beginnings, our program for heterosexuals diagnosed within the last 2 years. This involves one-on-one support and education, as well as information about Pozhet events, groups and services.
In Australia about 15% of people diagnosed with HIV report heterosexual transmission. We know that almost half of this group are diagnosed with HIV late which means there is a high rate of men and women who do not know they have contracted HIV. The best way to stop HIV transmission is to have a HIV test so that you do know and can start treatment. Heterosexual people who have had sex overseas or have a partner from overseas should ask their GP about a HIV test. If you are not sure whether you need a test talk to your GP.
