Primary Function

Our primary function is to ensure that through our work, People with HIV (PWH) play a significant part in the decision-making processes that directly affect their everyday lives. These decisions include planning and implementation of programs and policies that lead to better access and health equity; to empower and support PWH, share experiences, while creating a usable approach for reducing stigma and discrimination.

Ways We Help

Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.

Education

HIV Long-Term Survivors face a myriad of interconnected psychosocial, practical, and medical problems rooted in HIV-stigma, aging, ageism, and economic distress that impacts functional health-related quality of life issues. We now know that surviving too can also have trauma-related implications. The legacy of our past is influencing our lives now, and too many survivors are unaware of what is happening to them.

Advocacy

As HIV activists, we hear a lot about “key populations,” disparities” and “bridging the gaps.” The conversation usually revolves around gender, gender expression, race and poverty and the roles they play in people with HIV lives.

Support

Living in isolation makes finding a sense of meaning and purpose difficult. It contributes to our feelings of invisibility. Isolation accelerates depression to despair that sometimes can lead to self-harm. What do we want our future to be?
