DELAYS IN LINKAGE TO CARE AFTER HIV DIAGNOSIS POSE BIGGEST THREAT TO TREATMENT ACCESS

 

Following individuals through the cascade of care, from HIV diagnosis to treatment and undetectable viral load, rather than taking snapshots of performance, has led researchers on a major South African study to pinpoint linkage to care after testing HIV positive as the biggest weakness of treatment programmes seeking to achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, an article in the journal The Lancet HIV reports.

 

The study, carried out through the Africa Health Research institute in the Hlabisa district of KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa, found that less than half of the population with HIV in the district had linked to care within eight years, despite the fact that 82% were aware of their HIV infection.

Mr. Aliyu, in a statement by his office on Monday, said it was a great disservice to the vulnerable group of HIV patients for the media to disseminate such claims in the absence of scientific evidence.

Regular Giving Manager

Salary £30,000 per annum
35 hours per week 12 months initially, with the possibility that it may become a permanent role.
Based in Manchester

 

This new fundraising role has been designed to grow our income from people who appreciate the work that we do and understand the impact that HIV can have on people’s lives.

 

This is a role ideally suited to someone who has vision, a creative mind and who thrives on developing new projects. We are looking for someone who works best when given high levels of responsibility to shape and drive a project. Most importantly we want to find someone who is passionate about their work, as passion is one of our organisational values.

 

George House Trust has been supporting people living with HIV since 1985, and in that time HIV has changed significantly. Our service users are really diverse and include gay men, heterosexual Black Africans, people ageing with HIV and young people who were born with the virus.

 

Unsurprisingly, the vibrant LGBT community in Manchester is a great supporter of George House Trust. It is for this reason that the focus of the regular giving campaign will initially be the LGBT community here in Manchester. 

 

You will find more details about the job and a person specification here and, if you have the skills and experience to join us and wish to apply for the post, please complete the Regular Giving Manager application form. You might also want to take a look at our annual report for 2015 - 2016. 

 

If you have difficulty downloading any document, please contact Samuel Clarke who will e mail the files to you upon requet.

 

For an informal chat about this post call the Joint Chief Executive on 0161 274 5650.

 

The closing date for this post is 5.00 p.m. on Wednesday 8th February 2016.

 

George House Trust is hosting an open evening on 1st February 2017 from 5.30 p.m. until 7.30 p.m. for anyone who is interested in our current vacancies. If you would like the opportunity to come along to find out more about our fabulous charity and the vacant fundraising roles, come along to 75-77, Ardwick Green North M12 6FX and meet some of our wonderful staff.

 

We especially welcome applications from groups which reflect George House Trusts’ service user groups – HIV positive people (and other disabled people), gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, people from black and minority ethnic groups, and people from refugee communities. George House Trust’s recruitment and selection procedures reflect our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. A Disclosure & Barring Service check will be requested, at the same time that a job offer is made.

 

George House Trust's vision is for all people living in the North West of England to live happy and healthy lives and be free from stigma and discrimination; for all people to know their HIV status and to be HIV aware.

35 hours per week
Based in Manchester

 

We are looking to recruit an experienced and talented Fundraising Manager with a proven track record in securing funds from charitable trusts and foundations. Growing this source of funding is vital to our future sustainability, and the Fundraising Manager’s role is central to this.

One day our Fundraising Manager could be talking to a major charitable trust about the emerging support needs of people aged 50+ who are ageing with HIV, and the next day they could be writing a bid for a residential activity break for teenagers who were born with the HIV virus.

AMERICAN CHARITY SUGGESTS IMPLANT COULD REVOLUTIONISE HIV TREATMENT

 

An American charity has suggested that an implant, which is called the Medici drug delivery system and is being developed by Boston-based Intarcia Therapeutics Inc. could revolutionise HIV treatment.

 

Strong adherence is key to effective HIV prevention, this device could be crucial in helping people stick to a regimen without having to worry about how to acquire and store pills or having to remember to take medicine every day.
