Documenting Our Experience
We believe that women living with HIV are the experts in their own experience and therefore it is essential for them to lead, share and generate the creation of knowledge including research.
This means that we support and advocate for women living with HIV to produce tools, research and materials that most matter to them. We support community based and feminist participatory action research frameworks and methodologies.
