A Girl Like Me (AGLM) is a program of The Well Project and is an online "blog" where women of all ages can share their stories and promote understanding of HIV through online storytelling. There are millions of women around the globe who are living with HIV and AIDS, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in the experiences they go through each day. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV and AIDS in women and girls, and create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experience of what it is to live life with HIV.
