NAPWHA’s campaigns are funding dependent. NAPWHA is advocating for a national campaign to address HIV stigma and reduce barriers to testing and treatment.
Good Quality of Life
Good Quality of Life is a peer-based campaign rolled out nationally across various platforms featuring a diverse group of positive people talking about where HIV fits in to the broader picture of their overall health and wellbeing. This campaign is all about people with HIV sharing some great moments as well as the things they do to contribute and maintain a good quality of life including being on the right HIV treatment.
In our MOMENTS videos, eight positive peers talk about enjoying great moments and the things they do to make more of them. All our peers place fundamental importance on being on the right HIV treatment. But clearly, good quality of life is about so much more.
The MyLife+ application is designed to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV. Developed by ViiV Healthcare and curated by NAPWHA, MyLife+ helps PLHIV track their medications, CD4 count and viral load, other health conditions, symptoms and even moods.
HIV Health Literacy Framework project
NAPWHA are overseeing a project to develop a new national HIV health literacy framework which will span over a three year development phase (2019-2021), aiming to help NAPWHA update and enhance its connection to all people with HIV in Australia.
The framework will enable NAPWHA to adapt to the changing epidemic by facilitation better communications with important marginalised populations that are not benefiting equally from Australia’s HIV response, such as, women with HIV, heterosexual people with HIV, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds.
The project will also benefit people with HIV across Australia by providing better targeted health literacy advice that around decision-making on HIV treatment and care.

I/We Choose to Get Tested
I/We Choose to Get Tested is a creative social media campaign by NAPWHA in 2022, one which aims to raise awareness of HIV among the broader community, particularly for heterosexual men and women. It is easy to get tested for HIV, with many options available today. HIV tests are confidential. Now they are also easier and quicker with the availability for ordering a home testing kit online for convenience.
