Volunteer Positive Reports From Field -- Chiang Mai, Thailand (Regularly Updated)
A small group of travelers made history in January 2012: They became the inaugural team of people living with HIV to serve openly as international volunteers as part of Volunteer Positive -- an international service agency created by and for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of the organization's volunteers share their stories and experiences in this blog.

Run for It! A Blog Entry From Volunteer Positive (February 9, 2012)
"I came to Chiang Mai with the idea that I was going to be some strong HIV presence. An international volunteer who wanted to change the perception of a person with HIV/AIDS. Sorry, I was mistaken. As a volunteer you don't get to pick your goals. They just appear as you go from day to day."
