Session Description
Stress is a silent killer of persons living with HIV. Studies have shown that chronic stress decreases the CD4+ T-cell count of HIV+ individuals and predisposes them to mental disorders. The WHO recommends that psychosocial care like mindfulness practices be integrated into standard HIV therapy. This workshop aims to put the spotlight on mindfulness meditation as a useful adjunct to antiretroviral therapy and to teach participants how to practice this form of mindfulness in their daily lives.
