What We Do

Education is the umbrella under which all aspects of PozFem UK’s goals sit

DIVERSITY
We aim to ensure that PozFem UK is recognized nationally so that we can reach out to the diverse community of Women Living with HIV in the UK, including women who are isolated. We do this through printed information, web, email and face to face contact.

ACCESS TO CARE TREATMENT AND SUPPORT
We aim to provide peer support, care and advice to Women Living with HIV through our discussion board and website

EMPLOYMENT
We aim to promote more active policy and practice to support Women Living with HIV who are or want to be in employment. We do this by influencing organizations in the world of work and making referrals to relevant organizations.

PARTNERSHIP AND COLLABORATION
We aim to achieve effective and efficient services for Women Living with HIV. We do this by increasing dialogue and partnerships with community members, groups and organizations and influencing those working in this area.

POSITIVE CHANGE
We aim to create a world which listens to our voices and actively seek our involvement, resulting in a world which provides support and solidarity instead of stigma and discrimination.

HOW DO WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

We aim to hold regional and national meetings at which issues impacting on our lives will be discussed. We also have a discussion board where up-to-date information is shared and where you can participate in discussions on the issues that affect you.

In order to address those issues, PozFem UK influences organizations involved in the support of people with HIV. We also collaborate with related community and voluntary organisations, health and social care agencies, education departments, trade unions, media, government bodies on a local, national and international level, to raise awareness of the issues faced by Women Living with HIV.

We influence through formal consultation processes, presenting at conferences, workshops and seminars, media interviews, responding to issues relating to HIV and gender inequalities.

PozFem UK provides speakers, facilitators for training and coordinates groups of HIV positive women for consultation.
