The Buddy Initiative
This initiative is a peer-based program aiming to unite people living with HIV (PLHIV) to share and support one another.
As a Buddy you will be trained on current issues surrounding HIV/AIDS, STIs, disease progression, co-morbidities, mental health, AoD, ageing and self-care. You will be a source of information and referral for a PLHIV who is needing support, as well as assisting in reducing their anxiety, stress and isolation. You will also be able to contact people in need in rural and remote areas through Skype.
If you are interested in being a buddy in this program, or if you want further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (08) 94820000 .
