Event date: 1-Feb-2018
Started in 2013 by ICW’s Jessica Whitbread, Love Positive women is an annual event that takes place from February 1st to 14th using social media to create awareness about Women living with HIV and link women from all over the world to acts of love and care.
To date Love positive women has created a platform for individuals and communities to engage in public and private acts of love and caring for women living with HIV. It is also a time for us at ICW to focus on self-love as a way of drawing our collective strength towards a more connected community and network.
This year the Women and HIV/AIDS Initiative (WHAI) have teamed up with Jessica to develop the Love Positive Women guide. Please read and share the guide and follow the Facebook page here to connect with women living with HIV and our partners and friends planning various activities across the world.
Join ICW with our sisters, partners, family and friends in celebrating Love Positive Women #lovepositivewomen.

Community Driven Strategic Information for Change Webinar
Please join Project SOAR, GNP+, ICW, UNAIDS and USAID for a webinar presenting the People Living with HIV Stigma Index 2.0. In this 1 hour webinar, researchers from Project SOAR and collaborators from global networks of people living with HIV will describe the participatory process of updating the Stigma Index, funded by USAID and PEPFAR. Presenters will highlight how the updated tool is different from the original version and will discuss the results from pilot testing the updated tool in three countries—Cameroon, Senegal, and Uganda.
The People Living with HIV Stigma Index was developed by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW), the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), and UNAIDS as a survey tool to collect evidence on stigma and discrimination that can be used to advocate for the rights of people living with HIV.
Project SOAR, in collaboration with the Stigma Index partners (GNP+, ICW and UNAIDS), USAID and other stigma experts implemented a process to update the People Living with HIV Stigma Index. Since the tool was first launched in 2008, it has been widely used, and the evidence base around stigma has grown. The update was undertaken to more directly capture the experiences of the diversity of people living with HIV, and to take into account the shifting global response to HIV—particularly the global recommendations around early treatment. The People Living with HIV Stigma Index has been strengthened so it can be applied more effectively as a measurement, advocacy, and empowerment tool.
