Recognising inspiring action and unsung supporters in HIV
Every day, people right across Australia are making a remarkable difference supporting those with HIV and by preventing HIV. These are the unsung heroes, working behind the scenes in HIV healthcare and support services for people living with HIV, research or education, or the countless allies or advocates helping to better educate others on HIV or break down stigma.
To help recognise and celebrate these inspiring unsung heroes, the National Association of People with HIV Australia (NAPWHA) and Gilead Sciences Australia and New Zealand have partnered to launch the 2021 Community Champions! We want to find and celebrate these everyday community champions by telling their stories and celebrating the role they play in championing the needs of people living with HIV and prevention.
What will it mean to be a Community Champion?
Our Champions’ stories will be brought to life through a visual and written campaign, through video, imagery and words and launched at a World AIDS Day event on Friday 26 November 2021. These stories will be used across social channels and media to help raise awareness of HIV, address stigma and recognise the needs of people living with HIV in 2021.
