What do we mean by 'young people'?
At Living Positive Victoria we are committed to supporting and creating services that empower the health and wellbeing of Victoria’s diverse HIV community – including young people. When we talk about young people we recognise that the needs and experiences of emerging generations are different from those who came before them – especially when it comes to people living with HIV. As a young person it can be hard to engage with communities and organisations especially if you don’t see yourself represented in them. We want to create a welcoming environment where everyone has an opportunity to have their voice and needs heard. We understand that young people living with HIV have grown up and receive their diagnosis in a completely different context from a lot of other people in the community. No one knows what you’re going through better than someone who’s also had that experience. Gen Next aims to connect young people who have similar stories and build meaningful relationships.
What programs and services exist for PLHIV 30- 35 years and over?
Living Positive Victoria has a range of targeted programs and services for all people living with HIV. We encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about what may be right for you, or what other initiatives we can support. Living Positive Victoria is also a keen supporter of The Institute of Many (TIM) a peer-run group for HIV positive people. Acting as a social umbrella and advocacy platform, TIM brings HIV positive people together to share their experience of living with HIV in an informal, confidential environment- in person and online.
