Richmond residents are being invited to have HIV tests and sit down with a sexual health advisor to talk about various safe sex strategies and behaviours at an event next month.

Spectra-London is offering this free service to Richmond Council staff and residents at The Terrace Parlour Room at York House on World AIDS Day, on December 1 from 9.30am to 5pm.

World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people all over the world to come together to celebrate the achievements that have been made in the fight against HIV/AIDS, to stand in solidarity with those living with HIV and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.
