Changes at Living Positive Victoria
Living Positive Victoria (LPV) held its Annual General Meeting earlier this month, where they debuted their refreshed board of directors and announced a new partnership commitment with Straight Arrows and Positive Women Victoria.
Sam Venning stepped down as President and Ian Muchamore, a public healthy policy expert and previously-serving vice-president, stepped into the role. Muchamore said that “the refreshed board of Living Positive Victoria combines both governance expertise and a diversity of experiences in living with HIV. The coming year is an opportunity for the organisation to lead a re-energised, community-wide response, which both supports the needs of people living with HIV and also recognises their central role in prevention.”
LPV also announced a new commitment to a series of health promotion activities with the intention of strengthening the community of women living with HIV. They’ll be working with Straight Arrows and Positive Women Victoria to develop a workshop for newly diagnosed women, and are set to dedicate an edition of Poslink to the issue.
Their crowdsourced ENUF campaign was also a talking point, where new community activities will continue to take place in anticipation of the July 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne.
