Volunteer Positive, an international service organization comprised of people living with and affected by HIV, has assembled its first group of volunteers, according to a Volunteer Positive statement. Ten volunteers will travel to Chiang Mai, Thailand, in January. They will be the first international team of volunteers with HIV to serve openly with the virus. The volunteers will be connected with existing groups in Chiang Mai to work with sex workers, at-risk youth, children orphaned by HIV, and other groups.
