Peers from affected communities — including people living with HIVpeople who inject drugs, gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, and sex workers — have played a central role in the HIV response from the very start of the pandemic. Many of the Australian HIV response’s internationally recognised successes come down to the powerful impact of this peer work.

The W3 Project is proud to have close, sustained partnerships with peer-led organisations working in the HIV response across Australia.

Peers working in HIV have been involved in every facet of the W3 Project, from planning and prioritising to carrying out the research, analysing data, and co-authoring publications.
