The Destitution Project - October update

On 10th October, Contact and BHA visited the Destitution Project (DP) in Bolton to put on a play for DP service users and volunteers.  The performance, funded by Public Health Britain, helped to challenge some of the myths and misunderstanding around HIV, and made it clear that people with HIV can live healthy lives if they are diagnosed early and are on effective medical treatment.

The production was based on interviews the playwright Cheryl Martin held with people living with HIV in Greater Manchester.  It was a wonderful performance, well received by the audience.
