HIV Women’s Peer Support Service
The HIV Women’s Peer Support Service has been developed by the HIV Women’s Health Program and the PEACE Multicultural Services team in collaboration with culturally diverse women living with HIV.
The HIV Women’s Peer Support Service offers individual and group peer-led support for people living with or affected by HIV. It aims to empower people with lived experience to be able to positively influence the lives of others who are affected by HIV. This program recognises that every client has the potential to contribute to the lives of others if given the opportunity and the skills to do so.
If you have been affected by HIV and would like to become a peer supporter, please get in touch with the Program Coordinator by phoning (08) 8245 8100.
