Peer Programs

Peers in HIV care are specially-trained individuals who serve on the health care team to provide patients with information, support, and assistance in navigating services. HIV peers are often living with HIV, but not always. Their qualifications and roles rest on their connection with the community they serve.  Peer programs serve to recruit, train, and support peers so that they can carry out their duties.
