Positive Sex and Relationships: HIV Positive Safety Card
People who are living with HIV may be at an increased risk of experiencing abuse and are more likely to have experienced violence and trauma throughout their lifetime. Abusive partners may also prevent survivors living with HIV from accessing necessary treatment and care, and the stress caused by abuse can further compromise their immune systems and accelerate the progression of the disease.
Health care providers who work with HIV treatment and long term care have many opportunities to reduce the isolation of survivors and increase their options for safety and better health. This safety card can support providers and community advocates in having conversations with HIV positive people about healthy relationships, experiences of trauma, and how trauma and violence can make it harder to stay healthy.
Available in English as PDF download and in hard copy in quantities of 50, 100, 200 or 300. This card is best used in conjunction with a Universal Education approach.
