TasCAHRD has been providing care and support for people living with HIV for over 25 years. Support is also provided for the partners, family and cares of people living with HIV.
The Care and Support Officer works with individuals to identify their specific needs and goals and in turn supports the person to meet these needs. This may include working with other services to best meet the needs and ensure the best possible quality of life.
The HIV Care and Support Program also engages with people living with HIV to promote peer support and interaction through creating opportunities for people to come together in a safe environment.
The Care and Support Officer may also support people living with HIV to access financial assistance from the Andrew Shaw Foundation.
