NEWLY DIAGNOSED

Everyone responds to an HIV diagnosis differently – there is no right or wrong way to handle the news. It’s important to remember that treatments for HIV have improved enormously in recent times. Many people living with HIV are only taking one or two pills a day, and manage to keep the long term health impacts of HIV to a minimum. 

You can contact the NZAF if you have any questions or need to talk to someone. There are a number of peer support organisations out there too such as The Institute of Many (TIM)Body Positive, Maori, Indigenous & South Pacific & HIV AIDS Foundation (INA) and Positive Women.
