A recent survey conducted by Positive Life found that:

  • 22% of people would not approve of a person with HIV looking after their child.
  • 29% of people would not approve of a family member dating someone with HIV.

Crippling stigmatising attitudes contribute to higher levels of poor mental health, low confidence, social isolation, and levels of shame and fear that remain unaddressed, and perversely more disabling than the physical condition itself.

It shouldn’t be like this.

As a community, the Buyers Club can help make this right; come and join us, and be a part of something very special
