NZ Camp for +Teens

Positive Women Inc. together with Rebecca Flanagan, the paediatrics nurse with the Community HIV Team at Auckland hospital, recently organised an overnight camp for young people in New Zealand living with HIV.

While the camp was short, the group had a fun-packed program from the time they arrived at the venue.

Between the all-important support groups where they talked about the importance of taking medication, safe sex and where to find information and support, the group had time to do a mountain bike ride on a track with gorgeous views over the Hauraki Gulf, watch a movie, plus various other fun activities and games.

Most of all, the camp provided time to connect, share and catch up with other young people living with HIV.

A huge thank you to Marietta and Rebecca for putting the camp together.
