About Women Like Us – Aging Positively

Women Like Us – Aging Positively focuses on increasing overall health and wellness among women aging with HIV by increasing social connectedness and access to relevant health information. This program aims to expand access to health information that centers the needs of women aging with HIV, improve patient-provider interactions and relationships, and decrease isolation. It also works to provide opportunities for women to connect with each other through The Well Project’s network, build health literacy, and expand leadership and capacity building among women aging with HIV. 

Women Like Us – Aging Positively ensures that The Well Project’s vision – of a world in which women living with or vulnerable to HIV have the information, support, and tools they need to advocate for their health and well-being, and live free from stigma – is inclusive of women aging with HIV.

We encourage you to check this page regularly for programming updates, including interactive online discussions about aging among women living with HIV, a private Facebook group, and educational resources for women aging with HIV, including talking points to help guide discussions with providers. All coming soon!

I love this space for us! Aging should come with a manual and a lifetime supply of ibuprofen.
