I know that it is probable that no woman with HIV from Cornwall UK, or even from the UK will read this but just in case I thought I would tell you here about a network for women with HIV or who have children and partners with HIV I am trying to set up in Cornwall UK.

To further this I did an interview for local Radio
Which went out today

I did an interview about the Network for women in Cornwall I want to set up . KPS, Kernow Positive Support - a local charity for people with HIV is helping/supporting me with this and trying to get funding

It appeared today as a small news item about the HIV women's network specifically for women with HIV in Cornwall went out on BBC Radio Cornwall today in the news section.

And then afterward on James Churchfield's programme this morning my interview was aired several times from 7 am.

You can hear it all again on iplayer at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/cornwall.shtml
James Churchfield (3 hr)
Broadcast on Radio Cornwall Tue 27 May - 06:00

The latest news and information to start your day

You can hear my interview and an interview with a representative from 'Positively Women' in London, UK and a statement from the UK government about money for social care of those with HIV.

(not that I believe what they said!
As someone with HIV have not received so far, nor have been offered any,  'social care' counselling or anything funded by the UK government for HIV. Apart from my essential HIV  medications and NHS health treatment - which DOES NOT include any element of social, personal or counselling care!! - The charity KPS have given me 5 counselling  sessions -  but government funded initiatives have not. They have provided my medical care, for which I am grateful - but then again I have paid in to our UK National Health Insurance scheme for over 35 years so I am entitled to medical care even for HIV, BUT I have had no care to cope with the shock of being HIV positive or my mental/emotional situation)


If any women who lives in Cornwall, UK  and has HIV - or indeed any woman who is a partner of someone with HIV or a child with HIV and is negative themselves, wishes to discuss the possibility of this network and what I am looking at this consisting of..............
