What we do
HIVSport uses the ‘Badge of Hope’ to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS and promote sexual health in the field of sport.
HIVsport works in partnership with professional sporting associations, umbrella HIV organisations, the media, medical and corporate bodies to:
Create, through sport, greater public awareness of the global epidemic of HIV and AIDS
Provide education and training to people in all roles in sport around HIV and sexual healthSupport sports-related HIV and sexual health education projects
HIVsport provides a range of tailor-made educational activities for you, your staff, members and players. Our educational services fall into four broad categories:
1. Health: Maintaining good sexual health for overall health and fitness
2. Equalities: Gender and Sexuality
3. Lifestyle: Respect for yourself and others
4. International Development issues
Course length depends on the level of detail required but generally our courses are delivered over a one or two day period. A sample course outline is provided below.
HIVsport can also provide short briefings on specific issues, for example - HIV/AIDS and travel to South Africa for the World Cup 2010 or overall sexual health including chlamydia, syphilis and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV.
Workshops are developed for key staff such as coaches, so they can incorporate some of the issues, perhaps on sex and lifestyle, into their training programmes and we are happy to deliver a short session on key issues inside an existing course that you are already running.
These are just a few ideas and HIVsport would be delighted to discuss any of these or any thoughts of your own at your convenience.
Please note that HIVsport does not receive any Government funding and we therefore charge a fee for all educational services. All fees and costs will be kept to minimum, are fully explained and are individually negotiated depending on the precise nature of your requirements. There will be no ‘hidden’ extras.
Sample course content
Please note that these sessions can be delivered together, as a full course, or as single modules. These are just examples. HIVsport is happy to work with you to develop other options for you if you wish.
