About Our Peer Navigation Program
There are lots of professions that support people living with HIV – doctors, nurses, counsellors, community workers. Our trained peer navigators, are people living with HIV, who share their lived experience to better support and guide others to live well.
Our peer navigators are trained in contemporary issues in HIV, and offer people living with HIV an opportunity to talk about issues such as coming to terms with a diagnosis, starting/switching treatment, or negotiating the impacts of stigma.
HIV affects a person in diverse ways, and our peer navigation program provides opportunities for to talk about living with HIV as it relates to ones own life.
Our informed and friendly staff provide personalised support for people living with HIV, their partners, family and friends, all across Queensland. These programs include social events, information sessions, workshops, and one-on-one support.
A holistic approach to support PLHIV to address barriers such as homelessness, mental health and other issues that might impact their management of HIV.
Here at QPP, we believe that everyone has the right to safe and effective healthcare – this includes those who may not qualify for support through the Medicare system.
