A major new project is inviting people to its virtual launch event, to find out more about how it will be working with people of African and Caribbean heritage to tackle HIV infections and stigma in these communities in Bristol and the surrounding area.
Common Ambition Bristol will see people of African and Caribbean heritage working in partnership with health care professionals to help develop new ways of increasing the uptake of HIV testing and reduce late HIV diagnosis and the stigma relating to it.
In order to achieve these goals, people of African and Caribbean heritage are encouraged to get in involved in the project through various paid and volunteer opportunities. To provide an opportunity to find out more about the project and ask any questions, a virtual launch event will be taking place on Tuesday 2 February.
The online meeting will take place over Zoom from 4.30pm – 5.30pm, and people are asked to register on this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/common-ambition-bristol-launch-event-tickets-135523984887
The event will give people the opportunity to find out more about the background of the project, how the project will run, what opportunities there will be to get involved, ask any question they may have and to register their interest in being involved in the future. There will also be entertainment kindly organised by the African Voices Forum, a Bristol-based network of African and African-Caribbean community organisations.
