Other organisations facilitating communication between people living with HIV.
Positive Life SA is a peer-driven positive body based in South Australia, they act as an independent voice for HIV positive people in South Australia to ensure that their lived experiences direct the provision of effective health and wellbeing support services and activities.
The Institute of Many (TIM) is 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.
As well as online membership to the global TIM Facebook group and TIM Women Facebook group ,TIM members casual events via our meet up chapters in most Australian cities. Events range from casual drinks at the pub to outdoor/cultural events, and are open to both positive people and their allies. Attending a TIM event is not an admission of your status.
Through the confidential Facebook groups and meet up events, TIM is an opportunity to make friends, talk, share knowledge & skills, and to bust some outdated myths about living with HIV.
