LIFE+

About Our LIFE+ HIV Support Program

The focus of the LIFE+ program is to support early initiation of treatment, encourage adherence to treatment and support People Living with HIV (PLHIV) to remain in care.

The LIFE+ program aims to reduce the time from diagnosis to treatment initiation thereby preventing HIV disease progression and reducing the possibility of onward transmission. We work with PLHIV to support treatment initiation, adherence and retention in care and help build the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively self-manage HIV.

The LIFE+ program improves HIV health literacy, address individual presentations of stigma and discrimination improve the overall quality of life for PLHIV.
