In the current status of the COVID-19 health emergency, VHHITAL training session is now an exclusive on-line event. We will keep you informed of any changes as they become known to us.

 

VHHITAL and Gippsland PHN invite GPs, Nurse Practitioners and other primary healthcare professionals within Gippsland PHN region to attend the training event. This informative and interactive session will provide you with the information and tools required to improve common STIs screening and care for the local community and key priority populations.
