Title - Gay Norfolk

Website launched to fight HIV in the county
hivnorfolk.com.
New HIV advice website.

A new website has been launched offering information and support on HIV for gay and bisexual men.

The site is being run by Transformation East Norfolk (TEN) and funded by Norfolk Health Authority.

Project Officer for TEN, Neil Kittle, says they decided to launch the online service because there was a proven need for it:

"Nowadays a lot of the work we do is through e-mail and the Internet. The web is an easy point of contact. We're hoping the service will help us increase the numbers of people we can reach," he said.

Although people of any sexuality can become infected with HIV, Neil Kittle says that TEN have decided to focus on helping gay and bisexual men because historically these groups need more support.

The website will provide a variety of services and information, including a request for condoms and counselling services via e-mail. Direct links to other agencies offering further information and support will be published, as will TEN's monthly newsletter.

Mr. Kittle says often people are worried about speaking to someone in person about the HIV virus and believes that e-mail will help those in such a position.

It is hoped that the website will either provide users with the information that they need or the reassurance to speak to someone with the relevant information.
