People living with HIV

Living Positive Victoria’s anti-stigma campaign ‘ENUF’ 2012-2018

People living with HIV (PLHIV) are central to the public health response to HIV.

This series includes content:

  • Written by peer workers and other staff from PLHIV peer responses
  • About PLHIV’s peer work
  • About how PLHIV peer responses are using the W3 Framework in their work
  • To help provide better services for PLHIV

People living with HIV have played a critical role in the HIV response since the beginning of the pandemic. Many of the internationally recognised successes of Australia’s HIV response come down to the powerful impact of this peer work.

The W3 Project is proud to have close, sustained partnerships with peer-led PLHIV organisations across Australia. Peer workers living with 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.

W3 Framework

Stage 2 of the W3 Project trialled the W3 Framework in peer-led PLHIV and PWUD organisations in Victoria, Australia.
