- a Global Citizenship in Action group project
On the 6th December, STS students will be hosting the final event of their project for HPSC2017A Global Citizenship in Action, called ‘Students Taking Infections Seriously’.
This FREE Q+A panel, geared towards providing
information about sexual health issues both within the UK and around the
world will be on Thursday 6th December at 4 pm in the Garwood Lecture
Theatre, South Wing.
There will be FREE REFRESHMENTS & PIZZA. In addition, raffle tickets will be sold for £1 each throughout the week until the Q+A session, in order to raise money for the Starfish Greathearts AIDS charity.
Sexually transmitted infections are a major global
issue. The population group most affected is those between 15 and 25 and the
rate of infection is increasing, which means that immediate interventions are desirable.
Sexually transmitted infections are a problem on our doorstep, affecting much
of the London population and are an important issue for students to be aware
of. However, there are health resources in place, that can and should be
utilized for testing and intervention purposes in the immediate vicinity of
UCL, and educating students about how to access to those services and the
global implications is essential.
The group is holding an information session where students can find out about the dangers in neglecting their sexual health, and how they can seek advice and practice preventative methods, or testing and treatment, as well as the ways in which we can all work to combat the spread of this global phenomenon.
