“Positively Aware saved my life.”

We’ve heard that from readers more than once over the years, but each time it affirms for us that the work we do makes a difference. When you support Positively Aware (PA) as an Impact Member, you help TPAN deliver critical HIV health news, treatment information, peer stories, and inspirational profiles to people affected by HIV. With every issue, we serve more than 100,000 readers—including long-term survivors of HIV, individuals living in isolation who turn to PA as their confidential, go-to health resource, and care providers working to better serve our HIV-affected communities.

“Over the past 18 months we’ve learned the effect that mis-information and dis-information can have during a pandemic,” says TPAN CEO Kara Eastman. “It is now more important than ever that there are trustworthy resources such as Positively Aware to inform, educate, and uplift the communities we serve.”

Our readers consistently tell us that they turn to PA to help make sound, informed decisions about their health. “The more I learn, the better equipped I am to teach,” one health educator said.

Readers also tell us that PA uplifts and inspires. “I am an HIV advocate and love to read Positively Aware!”

Because of subscribing members and supporters like you, we tackle important issues and help individuals living with or vulnerable to HIV on their journey. Many readers express concern about aging well with HIV. One asked, “How am I going to survive financially in retirement? I did not plan on living this long.”

When you subscribe and donate as a PA Impact Member, you are an integral part of our mission. You help make sure that PA reaches more readers who need us and PA’s trusted resource of accurate, up-to-date treatment information and important news for people living with HIV/AIDS as well as our advocates. Every issue, PA arrives in mailboxes, non-profit and health care settings, and readers’ hands around the country and the world, reaching some of our most isolated peers and community members. Most notably, Positively Aware is free to anyone who is living with HIV or unable to pay. This is our mission.
