Mission Statement

The Positive Living Society of British Columbia exists to enable persons living with AIDS and HIV disease to empower themselves through mutual support and collective action. From our personal struggles and challenges come our courage and strength.

Description

The Positive Living Society's first-ever AIDS WALK to THRIVE has so many new features to get excited about...a music festival, health and wellness fair, new walk route, plus a food and cocktails area are just some of them! All while providing hope, increasing awareness, and raising funds for those in BC living with HIV/AIDS.

A life with HIV/AIDS is just that--a life, which with a little bit of support, can help our members THRIVE. This year marks our 31st WALK. Things have changed for people living with HIV--and mostly for the better.

But that doesn’t mean life with HIV is always easy. The challenges are real: stigma, isolation, limited income, and the side effects of powerful medications depended on to stay alive. For too many, living with HIV means hiding from discrimination.
