Living Positive Victoria’s Strategic Plan 2023-2028: The launch of a new 5 year blueprint as we enter our 35th year

“It is with great excitement that we introduce Living Positive Victoria’s Strategic Plan 2023-2028, a powerful blueprint that reflects our unwavering mission to enable and empower all people affected by and living with HIV in Victoria to be a part of the response that seeks an end to the HIV epidemic.

Guided by our core pillars of Support, Advocate, and Connect, this transformative plan sparks a collective movement towards a brighter and more inclusive future.

At the heart of our strategic plan is the inspiring participation of community members. Through captivating photography, we proudly showcase the faces and stories of those who have chosen to be the living embodiment of our mission. Their courage, resilience, and unwavering spirit inspire us to provide comprehensive support, champion equity, and foster meaningful connections within our communities.

By celebrating the diverse voices within our communities, we challenge stereotypes, break down barriers, and cultivate a sense of belonging for all. Each portrait captures the strength and determination of those who inspire us and reaffirm our commitment to creating a world where HIV is met with understanding, compassion, and support.

We invite you to join us on this journey as we turn our strategic plan into impactful action.

Together, we will build a future where every person affected by HIV is embraced with empathy, empowered with knowledge, and surrounded by a resilient and compassionate community.

With Gratitude,
Craig A. Brennan, President




“In Living Positive Victoria’s 35th year as an organisation run by and for all people living with and affected by HIV in Victoria, we are thrilled to share our forward Strategic Plan 2023-2028 with our HIV community, sector partners, funders and the broader Victorian community.

Guided by the State HIV strategic Plan 2022-30, our plan will be essential in reaching our shared goals of reducing stigma, racism and discrimination and building new partnerships across a range of areas including mental health, alcohol & other drugs, disability services, legal & migration issues, housing & homelessness, cultural & identity diversity and addressing stigma experienced in health care settings. All of which are essential in improving the quality-of-life experience of people living with HIV today.

The scope of this strategic plan acknowledges our development and evolution and requires of us to continue to extend our networks and partnerships to ensure an inclusive and equitable approach to serving the needs of a multi-generational response and the ever-diversifying communities with which we engage.”
