Who We Are

Positive Women’s Network is Canada’s longest-running HIV organization for women. We provide support, education, and resources for women living with HIV in British Columbia and for health and social service providers across the country.

For women with HIV, we offer support and advocacy as well as HIV education, health promotion resources, and community connections. We are trans-inclusive and child-friendly.

For people working in health care, social services, or education, we provide education and resources on HIV health and advocacy issues.
