Imagery from the HAND Resource 2018

In September 2015, Positive Life NSW conducted a community survey which asked people living with HIV (PLHIV) about their concerns and experiences of HIV associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND). The results of this research identified five key areas for resource development to assist both PLHIV to talk about HAND and for healthcare workers, service providers and significant others on how to respond meaningfully when addressing or raising concerns about the possibility of HAND with PLHIV.
