Body Positive (1st of 3)

Body Positive

Body Positive was set up in the 1980s by people with HIV/AIDS to provide peer support. Based in Auckland, where most people with HIV/AIDS lived, Body Positive had links with similar organisations in Hamilton and Wellington. It provided educational forums, information on therapies, and residential weekends. This flyer advertises a 2011 retreat for HIV-positive men.
