Following on from the very successful Ngā Taipakeke o te Urutā HIV (Ageing with HIV) research and report, we are now well and truly into phase 2 of the project which is about enacting  recommendations identified in the report.  

Education and resources for people ageing with HIV and the aged care sector were key recommendations. Subsequently the aim is to develop a centralised website which will provide information for both these sectors of the community.  

The Tu Tangata Rite (leadership) team for this project includes representatives from Positive Women Inc. Toitū te Ao and the Burnett Foundation. Each of the organisations have contributed funding and will be involved throughout the project.   

Abby Leota is the Pou Tikanga of the project together with Milly Stewart from Toitū te Ao as the Kaiārahi (Guide) Māori.  

An advisory group of people living with HIV aged 50+ ( te Roopu Kaihono) has been established and the first meeting was held in February. This group will advise and guide the direction and focus of the website and any other resources ensuring the project is true to the GIPA and MIPA Principles and those who are ageing with HIV.    

Abby is in the process of establishing a technical advisory group (Ngā Heke) which will be made up of sector agencies in the aged care, research, and HIV sector.  

We are aiming to launch this site in June 2024
