Our team of Peer Advocates are HIV-positive young adults trained to provide sexual health education, counseling & testing. Peer Advocates also support people living with HIV through peer mentorship and counseling in our clinics.
Through the lens of their personal experience as people living with HIV, Peer Advocates work to empower young people to make good decisions about their sexual health. Whether speaking in schools, community based organizations, or religious communities, Living Positively Peer Advocates put an empowering face to HIV.
