For this 7th National Day of Women Living with HIV on 9th March 2022 we’re releasing a social media campaign. We asked positive women around the country to share their voices to help us celebrate the theme of this year’s National Day event, #WomenLivingWell. The campaign aims to raise the profile of our unique perspectives and stories across the country.
NAPWHA President, Scott Harlum, reports back on 2021 including the World AIDS Day announcement of the Commonwealth Minister for Health, the Hon.

NAPWHA celebrates today’s reassurance from the Commonwealth Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, that residents of Australia who are living with HIV and ineligible for Medicare, will gain access to HIV treatment and care.
