What is Project Pūtoetoe?
The stories and histories of long-term HIV survivors and those living with or affected by HIV are being forgotten. Especially in the age where HIV agencies are focusing on the eradication of HIV and getting to zero transmissions.
Project Pūtoetoe is an Aotearoa, New Zealand based, PLHIV led project which aims to record, present and preserve these stories because they matter. Recording these stories is an important part of our social history and we hope to empower PLHIV while decreasing shame and stigma.
