Working throughout East London, Positive East is a community-led HIV charity that has been at the forefront of HIV service and care for 30 years. Rooted in community collaboration, our projects and programmes are accessed by nearly 4,000 people per year. These include: Re:Assure Women’s Project (London’s only project for HIV positive female asylum seekers), community-specific support groups, individual peer support, skills-building workshops, volunteering opportunities, free rapid HIV/STI testing; counselling, information and advice around housing, welfare and immigration, and complementary therapies including yoga and mindfulness.
For nearly three decades, Positive East has borne witness to significant medical, social and political advancements; new HIV diagnosis are down, we've achieved the UNAIDS target of 90-90-90 and U=U and PrEP’s efficacy are scientific statements of fact. However, we know that not all people and not all communities are benefiting. HIV stigma is still all too common, with myths and misconceptions often guiding the narrative. 35,000,000 people around the world (50,000 in London) are currently living with HIV and we have mourned the loss of tens of millions of people worldwide whose fight against HIV ended too soon.
We are not done yet.
100% of the proceeds raised through this project will directly support our HIV support and prevention services.
