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.
Early intervention program to support those newly diagnosed with HIV and those re-engaging with care to navigate the complex environment of HIV care and treatment.
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.
