Decades after the emergence of HIV, disclosure remains one of the biggest challenges for women living with HIV. When thinking about whether to tell someone about their HIV-positive status, women must consider a range of possible results, for themselves as well as their families. That’s why we decided to create a series of booklets to support women thinking about disclosing that they have HIV. It was produced in partnership between Positive Women’s Network and the BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre.
The first two resources are designed to support women in thinking about sharing their HIV-positive status with their children/family and romantic/sexual partners. The third resource can be given to partners when disclosing. The fourth resource is for youth thinking about disclosure. The last resource is for service providers who may support patients or clients who are thinking about HIV disclosure.
