Body Positive is a peer support organisation for all people in New Zealand living with HIV.
Based in Newton, Auckland, Body Positive has been run by positive people, for positive people, since it formed in the 1980s. It was officially incorporated as a peer support organisation in 1992. The organisation is run by Chief Executive Officer Mark Fisher and small, dedicated team of staff offering support and services to people living with HIV.
The peer support organisation maintains having a unique perspective of "knowing first hand" what it is like to live with the virus and the issues surrounding being HIV positive.
Body Positive provides a broad range of services for people living with HIV in New Zealand in an attempt to break down the sense of isolation HIV+ people often experience and to build a sense of community and well-being.
Positive Women Inc. is a support organisation for Women and Families living with HIV and AIDS.
Positive Women Inc. aims to provide a support network for women and families living with HIV or AIDS. They also strive to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS in the community through educational programmes with a focus on prevention and de-stigmatisation.
The Positive Women logo takes the well recognized HIV ribbon and gives it a feminine touch by linking the ribbons together in unity to form a rose flower - a symbol of love, beauty, hope, happiness, fruitfulness and growth. The words Positive Women written vertically in green represent the stem of the rose, symbolizing strength and support.
