PWN-USA envisions a world where women living with HIV (WLWH) can live long, healthy, dignified and productive lives, free from stigma and discrimination. Our mission is to prepare and involve all women living with HIV, in all our diversity, including gender identity and sexual expression, in all levels of policy and decision-making.

PWN-USA members are individuals who self-identify as women living with HIV — whatever that identity looks like or means for them — and want to be part of the nationwide membership circle of PWN-USA. PWN-USA allies are individuals who support PWN-USA’s mission, and do not self-identify as HIV positive, whatever their HIV status may be.
Members are welcome to join any of PWN-USA’s active Workgroups. Workgroups are the primary way that PWN-USA engages its membership in advice, decision-making, input, and taking action on issues. Each group maintains a Google listserv of members, and holds periodic meetings via conference call.
