Summary

The Leading Women's Society (LWS) is comprised of outstanding women from across the country that have lived with HIV for 20 years or more while serving as change agents and advocates in their local communities. The members of LWS are chosen because of their commitment to raising awareness using their own experience to champion accessible HIV testing, prevention education, linkage to care, and more women-centered research.

Challenge

Women living with HIV are often overlooked in the conversations and decisions made surrounding treatment and prevention. Too often, individuals living with HIV have nowhere to turn when it comes to accessing the resources they may need outside of testing and treatment, and may feel isolated in their own community. The LWS helps provide resources and support to those who use their voices in order to help others and help erase stigma surrounding HIV.

Solution

SisterLove's Leading Women's Society focuses on mentoring advocates and providing training and leadership opportunities for women throughout the country and globally. The overall goal of the program is to strengthen knowledge about the epidemic by engaging women living with HIV and having them serve in leadership roles at the local, regional, national and international levels.

Long-Term Impact

Today, the Leading Women's Society has a membership made up of over 200 women from all different walks of life who have a deep rooted desire to eradicate HIV. LWS leaders represent a myriad of professions including HIV Prevention Specialists, Executive Directors of community based organizations, Ministers, Counselors, Spokespeople, and active advocates on Capitol Hill.
