HIV Ireland

 
HIV IRELAND is a voluntary organisation working to improve conditions for people living with HIV and AIDS, their families and caregivers, while actively promoting HIV and sexual health awareness in the general population.
 
Organisational Objectives
·         To support those living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
·         To confront the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV and AIDS.
·         To increase public awareness through the promotion of HIV and sexual health education.
·         To influence policy through partnership and active campaigning.
 
Prevention and education programmes funded by the North Inner City Drug and Alcohol Task Force include:
 
1.         HIV, Sexual Health & Drug Awareness Training Programme
This is a multi-disciplinary ‘train the trainers’ course which aims to provide youth and community leaders/workers with the skills necessary to engage young people in their care in sexual health and drug awareness education.  This is an eight-day training programme (1 day per week for 8 weeks) and is FETAC Level 5 accredited.
 
2.         HIV and Health Project – Safer Sex Negotiation Skills Training Programme
This training initiative primarily aims, through capacity building measures, to raise awareness of HIV and sexual health among vulnerable and at-risk groups located in the NICDATF area, to enable safer sex negotiation within these groups and modify and/or facilitate behaviour change, reducing primary and secondary HIV and STI transmission.
 
The ‘train the trainers’ programme, which is FETAC Level 5 accredited, aims to train youth and community leaders/workers, develop and enhance their skills, and provide them with relevant information and resources to deliver sexual health and negotiation skills training to the client group in their care.  This is a seven-day training programme (1 day per week for 7 weeks).
 
One-day Sexual Health Workshop
A one-day workshop on sexual health is also available at HIV IRELAND for youth and community workers who are unable to commit to the training for trainers programmes.
