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.

  1. Looking forward to meeting more people like myself that are HIV -AIDS.I am also a PRA Peer Research Associate with Womans College From Toronto,Ontario.I do HIV Cohort Studys with my company called CHIWOS Canadian HIV Womans Sexual And Reproductive Health Cohort study.I love what I do and I also like working with HIV-AIDS people.For the fact I am HIV myself.

  2. I recently started advocating “outloud” for people living with HIV. I was a behind the scene type of rallier for 10 years. Today I realize the importance of standing up and speaking out. If not to educate to keep this in the open , to be talked about , to know the decisions being made for me without me. I am very happy to be involved . I am not ashamed of being Positive and undetectable. I am learning more and keeping up with the latest in order to help educate those who think this is over. I want my grand children not to have to worry about this in their future. I am a happy and energetic woman living with HIV. I AM STILL THE “ME ” you knew and loved , but time will tell how people will take this. Its great to have such a support group of other positive women and men. Today I choose to live and be the real “ME” no hiding.

  3. I am a 44 year old woman living with HIV . I am undetectable. I used to hide from HIV and from letting anyone know my status. Today I see the reason we need to keep the conversation going. People still don’t know they too can get the virus. I see too many people practice unsafe sex. I see too much ignorance to condoms and ways to be infected. I am an advocate for anyone who is interested . I try to stay involved in local events and now I find the seminars and groups are are my backbone to Standing up Against this . I am no longer ashamed of me or my status. I am still the” Me ” many called friend, only time will tell now how the reaction is handled by those I love and work with. Glad happy and proud to continue to share my story and ideas with others willing to listen.

  4.
