Working together for everyone, everywhere

The HIV community are facing new and unprecedented challenges as a result of an evolving healthcare landscape, changing HIV service provision and persisting health inequalities.

The HIV Collective is a programme created and funded by Gilead Sciences in response to this changing landscape. Through the programme we aim to support effective, tailored solutions to address the issues those living with HIV or at risk of HIV face today.

The HIV Collective is a natural evolution of HIV Age Positively which was set up in 2018 with the aim of supporting the HIV community to address challenges facing people as they begin to age with HIV. While we want to continue to support people to live and age well, this can only be achieved by acknowledging the new and emerging challenges facing people today.

In July 2022, the HIV Collective held its inaugural meeting. Watch some of the key highlights from the event.

The HIV Collective is designed to facilitate collaboration within the HIV community, providing a forum for the open exchange of ideas and offering support based on what the community needs most.

To provide fresh perspectives, we work with experts known for ground-breaking work inside and outside the HIV space.

These experts work alongside the HIV community to inspire new approaches and solutions to the greatest challenges facing those living with or at risk of HIV.

Innovation in action

The HIV Collective was created under the banner of the HIV Age Positively programme, which has supported diverse projects across the UK and Ireland.

The HIV Collective creates a space for people to share ideas; together we can navigate new challenges to support people living with, or at risk of, HIV.

By working together for everyone, everywhere, we can support new and effective solutions to the issues those living with HIV face today.
