Life Network is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for heterosexual men and women living with HIV to network with their peers. Since it was established in 2009 in New York City, it has grown into a community with over 600 HIV+ members.
WHAT WE DO
Life Network provides opportunities for people living with HIV to improve their well-being. Our services include social events for HIV+ heterosexual men and women, and occasional educational events for all people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. For more details about the kinds of activities we do, click on this link: NETWORK of PEERS. Our primary mission is to build and support a community of heterosexual men and women living with HIV/AIDS .
WHY WE DO IT
When you’re diagnosed with HIV, it’s not always clear what you can do to stay well besides starting a drug regimen. The barriers to well-being for our population are often caused by the stigma that persists and the limited ways to find support in our community. Life Network offers people living with HIV an alternative to the social isolation that’s prevalent among us by providing private yet fun venues where we can network with each other. These venues also offer opportunities to learn about resources available to our community.
