A Girl Like Me Blogs Introductions

A Girl Like Me (AGLM), a program of The Well Project, is a blog where women ( cis and trans What does this mean? ) can share their experiences and promote understanding of HIV. Millions of women around the globe are living with HIV, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in their day-to-day experiences. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV; and to create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experiences – with each other, and with those seeking a support community.
