Take a Survey Addressing the Vocational Needs of HIV-Positive People

Not Working, Considering Work or Already Working? Your Voice Is Needed to Advocate for Services to Help People With HIV Achieve Greater Health and Financial Stability

June 24, 2009

National Working Positive Coalition is an organization that advocates for access to work options and financial resources that are most consistent with the personal and health needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Liza Conyers, Ph.D., of Penn State University is working with National Working Positive Coalition to conduct a survey to identify the vocational and employment needs of people living with HIV/AIDS.

Given the implications of this study, it is crucial to have representation from as many communities as possible. HIV-positive people of all ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations and gender expressions need to be adequately represented in the overall sample and included in the policy and advocacy efforts that will result from this study.

The survey is confidential and no information will be collected to identify anyone personally. To take the survey, you must be at least 18 and have HIV/AIDS to participate.
