Here from clients who attended WA AIDS Council training:

“Thank you so much for providing such informative and practical training to me and my team last week, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
The team has fed back that ‘it was the best way that HIV and AIDS has ever been explained to them’ and that staff member comes from a medical background. They also discussed feeling like they now wanted to be advocates for people that have been diagnosed to help in fighting the stigma and misinformation that is out there.
For me personally, I admired your professionalism and enthusiasm. As well as your confidence and expertise.
Thank you once again, and hopefully we shall meet again in the future.” 

“Excellent update, 20 yrs + since last education in formal setting. Would have liked the presentation to have gone longer!”
