Jaringan Indonesia Positif
This awards recognizes an individual, community or not for profit organisation that has worked to improve the health and/or rights of LGBTQI people and/or people affected by HIV in specific countries in Asia and the Pacific; or across the region more broadly during the pandemic.
In 2014, 50 PLHIV from 21 Indonesian provinces representing PLHIV catalyst groups and peer support groups gathered in Jakarta and founded the Jaringan Indonesia Positif (JIP) or The Positive Indonesia Network. Amongst others, JIP monitors the availability of ARV in the regions by collecting data from JIP focal points and constituents in each province.
We choose to bring back the enthusiasm and hope of those affected by COVID-19. Because we still have hopes of pursuing the big goal of JIP, which is ‘Fulfilling the right to health for people living with HIV through a peer support system within the framework of Human Rights and gender equality’. We can’t do it alone. So, come on! Let’s move together to raise the hope and spirit of struggle for our friends out there, help them spread the wings of hope; and become empowered PLHIV individuals despite the uncertain pandemic storm till when it ends.
