About The Well Project

The Well Project’s mission is to change the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic through a unique and comprehensive focus on women and girls across the gender spectrum.

Since our founding in 2002, The Well Project has become a recognized leader in the fight against HIV by revolutionizing the availability and accessibility of much-needed resources designed specifically for women living with HIV. The rapid evolution of technology and emerging ways information is accessed have dramatically increased our reach, exponentially expanding our impact both in the US and worldwide.
