National Aids Trust (NAT) provides an update for SAIF Members

August 12, 2014   //   No Comments

National Aids Trust’s Sally Thomas suggests that much more must be done for those who die with HIV to provide them and their families with the respect, dignity and equality they deserve.

Sally Thomas is Policy and Campaigns Officer at NAT, with whom SAIF has recently partnered.  Sally explains, “If we want funeral services to provide anyone who dies, including people who have lived with HIV, with the dignity and respect they deserve, funeral directors need to be up to date with what we now know about HIV and the risks associated with it. Understanding the reality of living with HIV today, and the impact of HIV medicine, will provide funeral directors with the reassurance they need to care for people living with HIV and their families appropriately.”

SAIF thanks Sally for the article she prepared for SAIFinsight, a summary of which may be read here by SAIF Members.  You will need to Logon first.

Sally will be speaking at SAIF’s Education Day on 5th November.
