HIV treatments are now so good that as well as keeping people with HIV healthy, they also stop transmission of the virus. Although we’ve known about this remarkable biomedical breakthrough for at least 10 years, it is still not widely known. We need your help to change that.
The National Association of People with HIV Australia (NAPWHA) is Australia’s peak non-government organisation representing community-based groups of PLHIV across Australia. We provide advocacy, policy, health promotion, effective representation, and outreach on a national level. Our work includes a range of health and education initiatives that promote the highest quality standard of care for HIV-positive people. Our vision is a world where all people with HIV can reach their full potential free from stigma and discrimination.
NAPWHA values diversity and inclusion in our workplace, practice and culture. Our governing body, the NAPWHA Board of Directors is and has always been, made up exclusively of people with HIV. Our staff team, committed to NAPWHA’s work in advocacy in the HIV response, is serodiverse and made up of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences (including HIV status, gender, ethnicity, cultural background and sexuality). NAPWHA’s membership of national networks and state-based organisations reflects the diverse make-up of the HIV-positive community and enables NAPWHA to confidently represent the positive voice in Australia.
