New ED and a new Look


Joe Rich's appointment as ED of the newly rebranded Burnett Foundation Aotearoa (ex NZAF), has been quiet and unassuming, just like the man. But don't be fooled by this. Joe Rich has been working at the NZAF/Burnett Foundation for around 15 years and has been influential in the different roles he has undertaken during this time. 

Even tempered an mild mannered, a quiet achiever with immense personal strength, unwavering in his commitment to the sexual health and rights for gay and bisexual men and to the elimination of AIDS in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Positive Women Inc. congratulates Joe on this appointment and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our working relationship and to collaborate in the national goal to eliminate HIV in Aotearoa. 

Ka mahi te tawa uho kite riri 
Well done, you whose courage is like the heart of the tawa tree
