Despite the key role of sex in women’s well-being, sexual and reproductive health are too often disconnected from HIV. The Well Project's materials and programs affirm the importance of pleasure, sex positivity, and reproductive justice for women living with HIV across the gender spectrum.

SHE/HER/THEY (Sexual Health Education/HIV Empowerment Resources/Treating HIV Equally) is a multifaceted educational outreach initiative focused on improving engagement in care, health outcomes, and well-being for women living with and vulnerable to HIV while promoting a culture of wellness, through a holistic and non-stigmatizing lens.
