Background

HIV Survivors and Partners Network is a South African based organisation offering its services across Africa . It is led by clinicians in discordant marriages with over 15 years experience in HIV prevention and treatment services.

The organisation's main focus is to fight HIV related stigma and discrimination, advocate for discordant partners right to HIV services and Sexual Reproductive Health and creating demand for HIV services across all cascades.

The secondary objective is to capacitate community health workers to ensure PLWHIV receive high quality, effective health services while promoting client centred HIV care. The organisation also has a peer led community based HIV direct service delivery component, a virtual safe space for woman living with HIV to ensure they receive real time advices and support from their peers. The founders of the organisation are clinicians in HIV sero-discordant marriages who launched a South Africa U=U Campaign called Positives Leading Prevention Initiative, a movement that seeks to place PLWHIV at the centre of the HIV prevention agenda by promoting treatment adherence and viral suppression.
