I’m Chiara Novello. I’m an educator, counsellor and sexual education expert. I’m part of a multidisciplinary team that takes care of HIV-infected young people at the Children and Women’s Health Department, at the University of Padova. I support diagnosis communication and the disease acceptance process. Since 1999, I have led programmes aimed at raising awareness on HIV in high schools and also currently lead school sexual educational programmes addressed to adolescents.
