New outlook for JAT

by: Leslie Bunder - Last updated: 2005-11-23



The Jewish Aids Trust is to re-launch itself as JAT and to reflect on all aspects of sexual health for the Jewish community.

The charity which was established in 1988, will continue with its work to support those with HIV and their families as well as expanding its educational work about sexual health for young people.

The move also comes as the charity names three new people to its board of trustees.

“We are working more and more with young people, educating them about the risks of sexually transmitted infections and giving them the knowledge to enable them to make choices to protect their health and well-being," said JAT chair Harry Rich. “However, working with those living with HIV will in no way diminish. Our commitment to this as a core activity is as strong as ever. It’s why we exist.”

Joining as new trustees are Michael  Chissick, Claude Coopersmith and Marlena Schmool.
