HALC conducts legal education seminars to community service providers, people living with HIV, educational institutions, and other interested organisations.
We regularly provide training in the Sydney area, but can also travel to rural and regional areas of New South Wales where required.
The purpose of these sessions is to promote community awareness of how the law affects people living with HIV (for example in relation to disclosure or immigration issues).
HALC provides training sessions for social workers, medical practitioners, nurses, and other health workers in the HIV sector about the services provided by HALC, and about changes to law and policy around HIV.
HALC is regularly invited to present on HIV and the law by community groups who work with HIV positive clients as part of a broader program of HIV-related information, and we also contribute lectures as part of medical/psychological/public health courses at Universities and Colleges.
HALC welcomes the opportunity to be involved in community legal education. Please contact us if you would like us to conduct an information session.
