Christmas/New Year closure dates in the NSW HIV community sector. The Positive Life office will be closed over the 2017 Christmas/New Year break from 5pm Friday 22 December and re-opens at 9am Monday 8 January 2018.

Help and Support Signposting

Many HIV services close for the holidays over the Christmas-New Year period and we've collected information about the closing hours of the main services, including regional, to help you plan for the holiday period. For people living with HIV throughout NSW, our agency partners and friends, we wish you a safe and happy holiday and look forward to 2018!

HIV Medication

This is often a very busy time of year, so please remember to have enough medication to get you through the break. The Choice is Yours website has a list and map of the community pharmacists and chemists we know are dispensing HIV medications throughout the festive season.
