The Australian theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is Now More Than Ever. To mark the event, NAPWHA asked a wide range of community advocates and the leaders of our member organisations and partners in the response to reflect on what the theme means to them. These short but immensely powerful quotes not only illustrate how far we have come, they also pose a strong call to action for the future of the HIV sector and our hopes for all people living with HIV in Australia.
Watch it here: On 3 December 2020 from 3PM (AEST) NAPWHA celebrated the launch of the Australian HIV Peer Support Standards with a lively discussion on the future of peer support practices in HIV and sexual health.
Peer practices have played a central role in the community response to HIV. Our familiarity with this history can sometimes mask the innovation taking place in this field. This panel discussion is an opportunity to reflect on the potential of a new generation of peer practices that integrate the community response with clinical and social services. Our panel will share their experiences working as and with peers in community and clinical services in the fields of HIV and trans sexual health.
