Guide to Menopause for Women Living with HIV

As part of our new campaign ‘We Are Still Here’, Sophia Forum collaborated with Dr Louise Newson from Newson Health ~ Menopause and Wellbeing Centre, to co-develop a guide to menopause for women living with HIV.

This booklet was created through our WISE UP+ Ageing Positively weekend, where women had the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about menopause that they wanted expert answers to. The guide was developed through a co-production process drawing on this lived experience and the expertise of Dr Nneka Nwokolo, HIV clinician and menopause specialist, and Dr Louise Newson, GP and menopause specialist.

The guide responds to Number 2 in our #EightAdvocacyAsks, which speaks about the need for ‘accurate, accessible and comprehensive menopause information and support in HIV clinics’.

We are delighted to share with you our new menopause guide to support health care clinicians and patients to have informed conversations around their menopause.

You can read the Guide here or at the bottom of the page. A printed version of the booklet will be available shortly.

In the video below, from the Dignified Menopause Summit, our director Sophie Strachan, talks about the development of the guide.
