This CROI (Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections) report back has been provided by NAPWHA Senior Research Manager, Dr John Rule, who has selected some snippets of information, curated for our NAPWHA member organisations and our Treatment Officer Network.
NAPWHA and the National Network of Women Living with HIV known as Femfatales had the honour of hosting a dinner and one-day forum in Sydney to mark the 5th National day of Women living with HIV (#NDWLHIV). It was a valuable opportunity for women to join together and hear from other leaders in the sector and plot a course forward to better engage with and deliver for all women living with HIV in Australia.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is raising valid concerns among our communities and one such concern is around the possibility of interrupted supply chains for medications for people living with HIV and PrEP users. NAPWHA has co-produced with AFAO and ASHM an updated fact sheet specifically for LGBTIQ and HIV communities.
Femfatales make a call to action for #EachforEqual increased awareness and equitable access to HIV testing
Monday 9 March 2020 is the 5th National day of Woman living with HIV (#NDWLHIV) in Australia — founded by the National Network of Women Living with HIV known as Femfatales. Our awareness raising network highlights issues relevant to women, and also celebrates the lives of all women living with HIV.
At the NAPWHA and AFAO joint Annual General Meeting 2019, we posed several questions to community advocates and leaders to craft a series of videos for World AIDS Day 2019 and to put people living with HIV at the heart of the campaign. The Australian theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is ‘Every Journey Counts’, and in our video series we ask our advocates and leaders what that theme means to them.
