Jamaican Network of Serospositives

My organization is located in Jamaica where we advocate for the rights and concerns of people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, through partnership, empowerment and resource mobilization.

Presence in: Jamaica
Focus: Access to Information, Criminal Justice, Education, Family, Gender-based violence, Governance, Health, Labor & Employment

We are a network of people who come from all walks of life – students, teachers, farmers, chefs, knitters, maintenance workers, counselors, entrepreneurs, and many more. We aspire, dream and support ourselves for a better tomorrow.

The Network began in 1996 following the first regional meeting of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Trinidad. This meeting was sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) and the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (ICW). In 1997, JN+ was publicly launched with support from the National HIV/STD Control and Prevention Programme (NHCP) and the Caribbean Epidemiology Centre (CAREC). To date, activities have been conducted through support from the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GTZ), United Nations Volunteers GIPA Project, the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), UNAIDS, Ministry of Health – National HIV/STI Programme, Jamaica Red Cross, National Association of Persons with HIV and AIDS (U.S.), the Caribbean Regional Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS (CRN+), Jamaica AIDS Support for Life (JASL), the Latin American and Caribbean Council of AIDS Service Organisations (LACCASO), and others.

I am a intelligent, ambitious young man who will become a criminal lawyer or litigator in the next 10 years within the Commonwealth. I recently completed a one year Paralegal Studies Certificate funded by the Global Fund, where I intern at the Ministry of Justice Legal Service Unit for two weeks. I am proficient in Microsoft Office Suites and legislations that are geared towards people living with HIV (PLHIV). Additionally, I am trained to train others including PLHIV on information including Self-care; Disclosure; Stigma and Discrimination; HIV basic facts; and the list goes on.

In my organization I serve as the Project Officer and aspire to be a Legal Officer for my organization. Currently, I coordinate programmes, activities and projects that are geared towards providing information on treatment, care and support for PLHIV and other key populations including young mothers and girls.
