There's a range of support and services available to you including HIV peer support groups, free counselling and our library service.

Counselling is also available through Sexual Health Services around the country.

Counselling is provided at Body Positive in both Auckland and Wellington to members via the Positive Health Scheme. Body Positive is a group founded by and run for people with HIV. 

Peer support groups for people living with HIV

Facilitated peer support groups for people living with HIV are run by NZAF, Body Positive and Positive Women. These are a great opportunity to meet other people living with HIV, hear and share experiences and provide support in a confidential and safe environment. For more information and to join the next group, phone the numbers or fill in the form below.
