Count Me In Too informs new sexual health campaign
Monday, 19 July 2010
The project, Informed Passions, was launched at the Friends Meeting House on Thursday 15th July. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund to the tune of £262,849, the project will research and develop new sexual health support services for gay men in the local area.
In his presentation, project lead Justin Harbottle of Terrence Higgins Trust highlighted the role that Count Me In Too's work played in the development of Informed Passions. He later went on to state that:
"In attempting to foster a community response to HIV, Count Me in Too has been an essential resource in not only considering the unique sexual health needs of local MSM in Brighton and Hove but, crucially, how this is situated within the larger health requirements of the LGBT community"
Mr Harbottle concluded that "utilising, and contributing towards, the work carried out by Count Me in Too will form a core component of Informed Passions over the next 4 years"
Informed Passions is currently recruiting volunteers who will not only be trained as 'sexual health experts', but will also play a key role in the project's research strategy. If you would like more information about the project, or would like to get involved contact Justin Harbottle by email at:
