A Positive Voice Talk


As part of your Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum, Emma can provide an honest, straightforward and sometimes even amusing account of 33 years of living with HIV.


Over more than 3 decades speaking in schools, Emma's talk has inspired EPQ projects; 'A' level drama pieces and helped potential medical students with their interviews for med schools. 


Topics covered in a 'Positive Voice' talk include


  • The Basics - What is HIV? How is it transmitted? What is AIDS?
  • Being diagnosed HIV positive
  • Disclosure to friends and family
  • Sexual Health and Relationships including up to date information such as U=U and the availability of PREP/PEP
  • HIV Treatment (the past to the present)
  • The early years and the progress today
  • UK and global statistics 
  • HIV and COVID-19 (living through 2 pandemics)


International research has shown that positive speakers decrease fear and prejudice about HIV, change perceptions and break down stereotypes.
