About A Girl Like Me

 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.

What is a blog? A blog is an online journal or diary where individuals regularly post their thoughts and comments on events and experiences.

What is the purpose of AGLM?  There are literally 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 to create a 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.

If you are woman living with HIV who likes to write and would like to find out more about how you might contribute to AGLM, please email us at update@thewellproject.org.
