Who is PLDI for?

PLDI is designed for PLHIV who are interested in building their leadership and resilience capacities either in the HIV sector or their personal lives. This program welcomes anyone living with HIV to apply for this leadership course. PLDI is a professional development opportunity – it is not a support group. People attending the training are expected to be present and participating for the duration.

Throughout the course, participants are encouraged to see themselves as part of a larger community of PLHIV, value and appreciate the unique experiences that accompany anyone living with HIV, and understand the history and evolution of the global and local responses to HIV.

It is important to note that there are limitations to what this course is able to achieve. It is not designed to assist PLHIV to come to terms with their diagnosis, and it is not a therapeutic intervention.

Ensuring that PLDI graduates are supported, prepared and able to go back into their communities to commit to social change and to challenge HIV stigma is an ambitious undertaking. It is our belief that it is the collective effort and the passion of PLHIV who have driven many of the changes in HIV policy, practice, and research and it is PLHIV who will affect how we see HIV tomorrow.
