Queensland Positive People (QPP) is a community based, not for profit, charitable organisation that provide a range of care and support services to people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Queensland. QPP is the lead agency for the State and are going through a period of growth and change which will support us to achieve goals set by the United Nations.
QPP works to reduce the stigma associated with HIV by raising awareness that HIV is different now. Through education, we can highlight that treatment advances have come so far that people living with HIV can now live long and healthy lives. Reducing stigma will also work to reduce fears of a diagnosis and increase the likelihood of people testing for HIV and therefore receiving an earlier diagnosis, which ensures people can access treatment and improve their long term health outcomes.
Programs offered by QPP are: HIV testing, peer support for newly diagnosed, case management to support the social determinants of health including support for people experiencing discrimination.
QPP seeks to create a safe supportive environment where people living with HIV (PLHIV) are well informed, and empowered to lead optimistic, healthy lives free from stigma and discrimination, and have the capacity to determine our futures.
QPP is dedicated to providing access to a comprehensive range of services that promote the health and well-being of PLHIV in Queensland, delivered in accordance with internationally recognised best practice.
We have previously released film campaigns offering our community's perspective of living with HIV. Please visit http://www.qpp.net.au/get-talking to view this videos.
