ViiV Healthcare and NAPWHA are seeking expressions of interest from people living with HIV in Australia to contribute their lived experience and skills to the Advisory Group for the 2021 National Congress of people with HIV.
Australian HIV Peer Support Standards have been published by NAPWHA in 2020, aimed at providing an excellent framework to guide people who are living with HIV, either providing or accessing peer support. They also can be used by healthcare providers, community health workers in who provide client services within HIV organisations, or policy makers who are setting performance standards for the provision of peer support.
