Positive Life NSW offers peer support and advocacy to all women living with HIV across the NSW metropolitan and regional areas to achieve and maintain our quality of life and wellbeing. Women living with HIV have specific social and health-related experiences associated with HIV.
If you are a woman living with HIV and you want some support, please contact us to speak to a peer living with HIV by calling (02) 9206-2177 or 1800 245 677 (freecall) or email email@example.com
Positive Life NSW recognises and celebrates the annual National Day of Women Living with HIV (NDWLHIV) on 9 March. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your own invitation and notice to Positive Life’s yearly National Day event!
Below are resources on our website and links to other places on the internet which could prove helpful to you. While 10 per cent of people living with HIV in Australia are women, Positive Life acknowledges that women living with HIV continue to be relatively invisible in the HIV prevention message.
