Upcoming National Day of Women Living with HIV Morning Tea in Adelaide

SAMESH, 15/02/2019

The National Day of Women Living with HIV in Australia was created as an annual event by Femfatales, the National Network of Women Living with HIV at NAPWHA (the National Association of People with HIV Australia), with the idea to situate it after International Women’s Day to promote a greater awareness around HIV and the needs of women living with HIV in Australia.

Join us for morning tea to celebrate and support women living with HIV this year.

The event will be held at SHINE’s Hyde Street site in the city on March 8 from 10:30AM-12:30AM, and will be a chance to recognise and pay tribute to an often overlooked demographic in the fight against HIV.

Donations are welcome, with all proceeds going toward programs that benefit women living with HIV.

All are welcome to attend this tea with friends, family, partners & supporters.

Survey for Women living with HIV

napwha, femfatales, Relationships Australia South Australia, September 2018

WOMEN’S EXPERIENCE OF LIVING WITH HIV AND AGEING

This survey is the result of a collaboration between MOSAIC, NAPWHA and Femfatales. They encourage all women living with HIV, regardless of age, to be motivated to consider their health, to reflect on living with HIV, and to complete this survey so that their voices may be heard.

The feedback from this survey can be used to make positive changes in the delivery of support to women living with HIV. Please complete this survey by Friday October 26th 2018. The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Morning tea for National Day of Women Living with HIV in Australia

NATIONAL DAY OF WOMEN LIVING WITH HIV IN AUSTRALIA: Friday 9 March 2018 

Join us for morning tea to celebrate and support women living with HIV.

“Too often, WLHIV in Australia are considered as an afterthought or swept up in the generic term ‘people living with HIV. Women when not well supported will often go underground after diagnosis and hide in fear or shame of being constantly labelled, judged and stigmatised. This leaves a larger proportion of WLHIV dealing with their diagnosis alone. The Femfatales aim to inspire, celebrate and advocate and give WLHIV the platform to step up and be heard. We believe that holding a National Day of Women Living with HIV Australia is a good start.” – Kath Leane, Chair of Femfatales.

Location: 57 Hyde St, Adelaide
Time: 10 am -12 pm

All are welcome to attend this morning tea with friends, family, partners & supporters.
