Who We Are

Our story

Positive Women Inc was born in 1990 to support and empower women and families living with or affected by HIV or AIDS. An often overlooked yet significant part of the broader HIV community living in New Zealand:

We provide a support network for our members  and also raise awareness of HIV and AIDS in the community through educational programmes with a focus on prevention and de-stigmatisation.

The Positive Women logo takes the well recognised HIV ribbon and gives it a feminine overhaul by linking the ribbons together in unity to form a rose flower – a symbol of love, beauty, hope, happiness, fruitfulness and growth. The words Positive Women written vertically in green, represent the stem of the rose, symbolising strength and support.
