A resource-sharing community for Canadian HIV and hepatitis C service providers

Positive Women’s Network

Established in 1991 as a collaboration between HIV-positive and HIV-negative women, Positive Women’s Network was born of a recognition that biological, social, and political factors put women at increased risk of HIV infection, as well as create particular challenges for women living with HIV.

Positive Women’s Network led initiatives to promote women-centred health, public education, and research on HIV and hepatitis C and supported women living in British Columbia in making informed choices about HIV and hepatitis C health and a wide range of concurrent issues. PWN also delivered free comprehensive training for service providers across the province, and their educational resources were distributed across the country.

Positive Women's Network closed its doors in 2017 in response to the shifting landscape of HIV and hepatitis C services, especially as these relate to women, as well as the challenge in sustaining long-term funding to run their programs.
