About Queensland Positive People

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

The establishment of QPP aligns with State and National HIV policy strategies that recognise HIV prevention, and sustaining improved health outcomes, requires a critical partnership between PLHIV and those responsible for making decisions that affect their access to specialist care, treatment and support.

This partnership is also recognised under Australia’s endorsement of the United Nations principle of MIPA: that the Meaningful Involvement of PLHIV in program development, implementation and policy-making will improve the relevance, acceptability and effectiveness of the HIV response as they have directly experienced the factors that make individuals and communities vulnerable to HIV.

QPP staff welcome community questions as they relate to our core programs: peer support, health promotion and treatment information, advocacy, and community HIV education and prevention.
