University's gay health course

The Terrence Higgins Trust has teamed up with The University of East London to put gay men's health at the top of the syllabus in an innovative new qualification for aspiring healthcare professionals.

The University Certificate in Gay Men's Health Promotion tackles mental health, current health policies, and offers cultural and historical perspectives on gay men's healthcare. Students will undergo work placements at the THT or one of its partner organisations.

Ilana Morrissey of the UEL said: "This innovative collaboration will enable students to gain both an academic and a professional grounding in the areas most central to the field of gay men's health promotion. It's a terrific opportunity for career development within this important sector of public health".
