Positive Support (PS, Women) started as a support group for women living with HIV in Broward County, Florida in May 2019. PS, Women provided a support system for women living with HIV that were experiencing isolation and increased self-stigmatization. Working in HIV-specific organizations, Ieshia Scott, the Founder of Positive Support, began to share resources, services and information about programs for PLWHIV to the members [women] of the support group to meet their personal needs. Many of the women experienced transportation, housing and insurance crises, that prevented access and adherence to care, and were navigated to resources that increased engagement in care and adherence to treatment.
Positive Support's mission is to improve HIV-related health outcomes and reduce HIV disparities for women through awareness, education, intervention and peer support.
Positive Support's vision is to improve the quality of life for women living with HIV, by decreasing the number of AIDS diagnoses and deaths.
Our services include Support, Education, and Groups for women living with HIV.
PS, Women is a support group for women living with HIV in Broward County, with members traveling from Palm Beach and Dade counties to build their tribe and connect with a peer. To join PS, Women visit www.facebook.com/groups/PositiveSupportWomen
