About the Programme
We have general health awareness sessions. These include sexual health, tuberculosis TB, child obesity, child tooth decay and healthy eating.
We provide a platform for confidential free information, advice and guidance and raise awareness on sexual health for members of the community to engage in open discussion on health and well-being matters. We provide a safe and confidential place for people living with HIV and Tuberculosis to share their concerns.
Child Tooth Decay, Child Obesity and Healthy Eating
Child Dental Health is an important aspect of a child’s overall health status. Tooth decay is largely preventable, yet it remains a serious problem. Children who have toothache or who need treatment may have pain, infections and difficulties with eating, sleeping and socialising. They may have to be absent from school and parents may also have to take time off work to take their children to a dentist or to hospital. Oral health is therefore an important aspect of a child’s overall health status and to children’s school readiness and is seen as a marker of wider health and social care issues including poor nutrition and obesity. Tooth decay and obesity may be more likely to occur together given that excessive intake of sugar and social deprivation are risk factors for both conditions. We provide workshops and training to raise awareness about child obesity, child tooth decay and healthy eating to prevent and to eradicate those healthy issues affecting children also reduces the overall needs and demands on NHS.
This is designed to be an all-inclusive social space for people living with HIV and Tuberculosis and other long-term conditions to have access to advice and support and to raise awareness about HIV and Tuberculosis and other related support services and how to overcome the stigma and the taboo around the illnesses and to live normal life with HIV and Tuberculosis (TB).
