What is peer support?

Peer support is when you can speak with a person living with HIV/AIDS (PHA). They can better understand some of what you are going through because they have been there too.

At Regional HIV/AIDS Connection our PHA Peer Advocate is available to speak with you. He can put you in contact with one of our HIV+ peer volunteers. Connecting with people who have HIV can help you better understand what living with HIV may mean for you.
