What is Peer Navigation?
No matter where you live in Queensland and no matter where you are on your journey with HIV – newly diagnosed, just coming to terms with your diagnosis or in need of social connection – we are here to help you live well with HIV.
Our Peer Navigators are people living with HIV, and are highly trained and skilled at supporting others living with HIV.
They will guide you through understanding the virus, leaning about HIV treatments, and helping you better navigate the health system, even if you don’t have Medicare. They can provide information and experience about disclosing your status to others, together with your legal rights and responsibilities. Our Peer Navigators are also able to assist you in connecting with services such as testing, treatments, doctors, pharmacies and other allied health services. If needed, they can link you in with our treatment support team if you need help with matters relating to housing, finance or stigma, discrimination and more.
If you want to connect with one of our Peer Navigators, get in contact and we will link you with one of your team. You’re not alone, we are here to help.
Meetings with our Peer Navigators can take place either in person or virtually. Get in touch today via phone, email, or through our instant messaging (bottom right of site).
