A new report from the US community organisation The Reunion Project on HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day (#HLTSAD) calling for a national coalition of survivors of HIV to advance the needs of survivors in four key areas: research, programs, community building, and advocacy.
The report states that, “A strong coalition of survivors with a single voice and clear message is desperately needed to advance the needs of survivors, as we continue to battle the long-term effects of medications, isolation, post-traumatic stress disorder, stigma, aging, and co-morbidities, to name a few.”
