LIFE+ Stigma & Discrimination

How We Help Fight Stigma & Discrimination

Even with highly effective treatments for HIV, the availability of PrEP, U=U, many people living with HIV still face HIV related stigma and discrimination in their everyday lives.

These experiences can often be more damaging or pervasive than the virus itself, causing long-term psychological effects. QPP continuously works towards reducing HIV related stigma, including education to the community, and providing support to those experiencing stigma related issues, especially those recently diagnosed.

QPP partners with The HIV AIDS Legal Centre (HALC) to provide specialist legal support. HALC can provide legal advice in a variety of legal areas, including discrimination, employment and immigration.

HALC is a not-for-profit, specialist community legal centre, and the only one of its kind in Australia.  QPP would like to acknowledge and celebrate the incredibly important work they do.

Referrals are made by QPP to HALC, contact us for more information if you have experienced discrimination or need help with other legal matters.
