QPP is a peer-based advocacy organisation which is committed to actively promoting self-determination and empowerment for all people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) throughout Queensland. People shouldn’t have to deal with HIV/AIDS on their own. Many PLWHA face similar issues, so it makes sense to share these experiences. People get involved in peer support for different reasons: to meet other people with HIV to overcome feelings of isolation, to make friends. As individuals we can help each other to cope with the ups and downs of life with HIV.
QPP is developing a Community Capacity Building framework in order to develop and support HIV+ Self Help Groups in Queensland. Through our advocacy work we provide assistance to individual HIV+ people who have been discriminated against and/or denied appropriate services or support.
QPP provides a voice in the community about issues affecting people with HIV/AIDS which include evidence based health promotion programs specifically designed to meet the needs of HIV+ Queenslanders regardless of geographical location or cultural background.
