CHINWAG: Positive Connection is a safe, inclusive and dynamic virtual space where every Friday, for one hour, the ever fabulous Vanessa Wagner will be hosting a Zoom video conference event with a team of HIV Peer supporters. This space aims to create a fun space for people living with HIV to have a yarn, unwind and come together.
Proposed laws to forcibly test prisoners for HIV have no basis in science, perpetuate stigma, and should be referred to a parliamentary committee, according to the WA AIDS Council and NAPWHA.
This year, the NAPWHA national forum of its membership met together in a one-day event, for the first time, physically distanced, each on our local Aboriginal lands, by video conference.
This updated communication informs PLHIV that Australia still has ample supplies of all HIV medications. In order to avoid going out, PLHIV can now have their HIV treatments posted to them at home by asking their doctor to forward scripts directly to the pharmacy. Information regarding ViiV and Gilead expanding compassionate access of HIV medication for PLHIV stuck in Australia is provided.
NAPWHA’s Treatment Officer Network held their annual formal meeting via video conferencing during this time of COVID-19 restrictions with informational sessions presented by Dr Liz Crock, Vikas Parwani, Dr Darren Russell, and Associate Professor Edwina Wright.
