After many years of worrying that we would not get another Ministry contract in 2023, we are pleased to announce we have received a new contract for the next two years which is a huge relief. This comes with a bit of extra funding which is in line with the new HIV Action Plan and the goal to eliminate HIV transmission in Aotearoa by 2030.
Positive Women Inc. has received some funding from Te Whatu Ora to develop a programme to raise awareness around HIV prevention and support for refugee and migrants in Aotearoa who have come from high HIV prevalence countries.
Officially introducing Kit Harding as the Positive Speakers Coordinator. Kit has been with us for just over a year now and has really started to get some movement going with the PSB post COVID. During COVID the PSB was hardly operatable due to no face-to-face contacts and many people did not have time to do upskilling or staff training.
