Support and Services
Living with HIV doesn’t mean going it alone.
Can’t find a health care provider? Don’t have health insurance? Having problems making your rent payment? Experiencing problems with a spouse? Not sure how your HIV diagnosis will affect your immigration status? Simply need someone caring to talk to? Fortunately, there are many different types of services available to HIV-positive people to support them in staying healthy. Some of these services may be available through your health care provider or clinic. Otherwise, there are many organizations that can help you find what you need.
To find the support your need, let your fingers lead the way.
Two professionally staffed and extremely supportive hotlines to call: Project
Inform (800.822.7422) and Women Alive (800.554.4876). Both are open Monday through Friday during business hours.
Check out poz.com’s ASO directory to find a nearby AIDS organization that can match you up with a buddy, a group or a professional to talk to (directory.poz.com). There’s also POZ Mentor, poz.com’s service to match up HIV-positive people for peer support (mentor.poz.com). POZ Personals has 60,000 HIV-positive members. Finally we have our online Community Forums, a great place to ask questions, learn from others’ experiences and get support (forums.poz.com).
