If there is a peer support group for women in your area, you can find out about it from your HIV organisation or from your HIV doctor. If there isn’t yet a peer support group where you live, maybe you would like to set one up.
The SHE programme toolkit provides information for women and teenage girls living with HIV about specific issues commonly relevant to women. It aims to assist women to provide peer support to other HIV positive women and girls.
Peer support can create an enabling environment for us as women living with HIV to feel empowered and take control of what is happening to us in our lives once more.
Shared experiences can address common concerns or experiences like stigma and disclosure. Personal support from another woman living with HIV can be uplifting and inspiring, and counters a sense of isolation.
Peer support has an important role to play in our lives as women living with HIV. Many people can become involved in this work, including other women living with HIV, healthcare professionals and facilitators.
There are many people in different places who volunteer in HIV organisations. We hope that volunteering as a facilitator will enable you to understand even more the many and complex issues that face us, especially as women living with HIV.
