Published by:UNAIDS, UNICEF

In 2006, UNICEF, working jointly with the Chinese government and technical organizations, established peer support networks in all six high HIV prevalence provinces to improve the quality of life of women living with HIV and strengthen community-based care and health service linkages. These peer support networks are providing a number of critical benefits and services, particularly in terms of connecting HIV positive women together, allowing them to support one another, to access essential health services, and to receive various government grants such as the social welfare allowance.
