The Heather Ivy Society

The Heather Ivy Society was introduced in 2012 as a support group, information resource and activism network for women whose lives are influenced by HIV. The society’s mission is to provide a secure forum and support network whereby women may obtain peer and professional guidance on HIV-related women’s health issues, without stigma, judgment or harassment.


About Us

Our online forum is created to address the myriad issues that uniquely impact women living with HIV. Some of our society’s meeting topics include:

  • How, when and to whom to disclose your HIV status
  • Understanding and dealing with HIV stigma
  • Conception and pregnancy when you are HIV positive
  • Pregnancy contraception when you are HIV positive
  • Protecting your partner from HIV transmission
  • Mental Health and Hygiene
  • Life Expectancy HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
