Queensland Positive People

QPP is a peer-based advocacy and service organisation committed to actively promoting self-determination and empowerment for all people living with HIV (PLHIV).

The organisation has grown through peers and allies creating safe and supportive spaces with and for each other – where we support each other to be well-informed; experience health and quality of life free from stigma and discrimination; feel empowered to enjoy increased levels of optimism, confidence and resilience; and play an active role in determining our futures.

Every year and decade, the landscape of HIV changes – new evidence and technologies emerge and more and more people from diverse backgrounds reach out and become involved. As PLHIV and allies, we are incredibly diverse in age, gender, sexuality, culture, ethnicity and religion.

As we explore, learn, and develop – demand for QPP’s services continues to grow.

QPP has transitioned into a multi-disciplinary service provider – including the very welcomed professionalisation of a long history of peer support. QPP’s peer navigators, case managers and peer testers provide support and practical assistance for people living with HIV and HIV/STIs for people at risk of HIV/STIs.

QPP can provide support with:

  • Social connection
  • Social and emotional support
  • HIV support and health navigation for HIV diagnosis, treatment and care.
  • Practical assistance with accessing medications, clinical services, food, housing and other essential support services including mental health.
  • Information and support with stigma, discrimination, migration and the law.
  • Emergency Relief Funding
  • HIV/STI rapid testing.

QPP works closely with state, national and internal partners to deliver comprehensive and coordinated responses to the needs of people living with HIV and people at risk of HIV/STIs.

QPP is an inclusive organisation and has no political or religious affiliations. Together we can ensure no one has to face HIV alone.

QPP is also an Australian, Incorporated Association and registered Australian Charity for taxation purposes.

Viewer Advice: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that QPP’s website and Talking About Treatment series of films may contain images and voices of people who are now deceased.
