HIV Care & Support

This service is designed to support people living with HIV.


Our beneficiaries include South Asians, Muslims, Horn of Africa, Portuguese speakers, Spanish speakers (mainly Latin American), other Africans and Black and dual heritage Caribbeans.

We offer one-to-one peer support, group support, counselling and welfare advocacy across five groups: NAZ Latina, NAZ Africa, NAZ South Asia and NAZ Vidas.

For many people, receiving a positive HIV diagnosis can be devastating. The NAZ HIV Care and Support Service is dedicated to enabling people to accept their diagnosis and live life to its fullest.


Our role is to help newly diagnosed people understand and manage their condition with confidence. For people ageing with HIV, our service commitment is to support you to live a long and healthy life within your community.


These 5 tools can stop HIV transmission:

  • Consistent condom use

  • Regular STI testing

  • HIV treatment

  • PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis)

  • PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis)

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis)

With the availability of PrEP, you can reduce the risk of HIV transmission for you, your partner and your community.

PrEP is provided for free as part of NHS specialist services in all level three sexual health clinics in England, Scotland and Wales.

PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis)

PEP is a treatment that may stop you from developing an HIV infection if you've been exposed to the virus. It must be taken within 72 hours.

PEP is available on the NHS for free but is only given to people who meet guidelines about its use. The best place to get PEP is a sexual health or HIV clinic.

'Undetectable= Untransmittable' (U=U)

When a person living with HIV is on effective treatment, it lowers the level of HIV (the viral load) in the blood. This is referred to as an undetectable viral load. At this stage, HIV cannot be passed on sexually.

"Fifteen years ago, I had the most difficult situation in my life when a doctor told me that I was HIV positive. I felt in limbo, on my own and without any support. Then I heard about NAZ. Nowadays I am living a completely different lovely life. Thanks to NAZ Latina for all your support and for being in my life."
