Guidelines for posting to the UK-CAB forum

The UK-CAB is a community group that focusses on HIV, treatment and related issues.

It is an open membership organisation, run by an elected volunteer steering group.

The discussion forum connects over 700 members. Posts can cover any aspect of HIV care, and related experiences, services, policies and guidelines. It is easy to publicise projects you are involved in or even to ask about your own care.

The forum is not moderated.

This depends on a the few simple guidelines below.

  1. Please keep posts relevant to HIV treatment or related issues.
  2. A clear subject line will help people reading your post.
  3. Please be kind and considerate when you post or reply.
  4. If you disagree with a post, please focus on the issue and not on the person posting.
  5. This includes respect over gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, HIV status and political views, etc.
  6. All posts are confidential to UK-CAB members.
  7. Posts should not be for personal profit.
  8. Although now rarely an issue, joining the CAB involves agreeing that HIV is the cause of AIDS
