Living with and managing HIV can be challenging for many people. Whether it’s coming to terms with a new diagnosis, starting or changing treatment, managing relationships or talking about HIV. Peer support has been proven to be an effective way of enabling people with HIV to live well and manage their HIV.
Project 100 is an exciting and ambitious programme that aims to provide all people living with HIV access to peer support wherever they live in the UK. Yorkshire MESMAC are supporting Project 100 across West, North and East Yorkshire.
We will achieve this by training and supporting 1,000 people living with HIV to become qualified volunteer peer mentors. Volunteers will receive a recognised vocational qualification in mentoring.
