Life Growing Up

10/12/2021 13:00 - 13:10

Life Growing Up has been created from real stories shared by young people who have grown up with HIV.

Critical issues around growing up living with HIV are explored in a compelling and engaging performance using storytelling, spoken word and music.

Experiences such as telling a sexual partner about your HIV, maintaining medication adherence and clinic engagement throughout childhood, and emotional and social issues associated with growing up with HIV are revealed.

Giving voice to a group of young people whose stories have been largely untold, it offers critical insight into the needs of this group of young people for professionals involved in services for young people.
