PWA celebrates and honours women, trans women, female identified, and all feminists and allies who unite, celebrate, reflect, advocate and act for the equal rights of all women and care about human rights.

Women have a deep and rich connection and place in the history, narrative, agency, and future of HIV/AIDS. Below are links to a few inspirational and thought-provoking examples:

Circle of Care

This collaborative approach to providing diverse, innovative and practical support services for women (trans-inclusive) living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto is a consortium of five AIDS service organizations including: AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP), PASAN, PWA, and The Teresa Group. The Peer Support Program, which is housed in PWA, builds on the benefits experienced by women living with HIV/AIDS giving and receiving support from each other.
