WORLD improves the lives and health of women, girls, families and communities affected by HIV through peer-based education, wellness services, advocacy, and leadership development. We envision a world where women, girls, and families affected by HIV and AIDS have the tools, support and knowledge to live healthy and productive lives with dignity. Our vision is rooted in a commitment to human rights and wellness with the understanding that this includes freedom from violence; access to housing; quality healthcare; food security; physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing; education and economic justice.
WORLD is an organization internationally recognized for our work with women. Our services include support groups, linkage to care, peer advocacy, educational classes and forums, policy and advocacy work, and retreats for positive women. We also work with youth, have a speakers bureau, and participate in special events such as the AIDS walk.
