Beyond LIVING partnership of the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW) and the Global Network of Young People Living with HIV (Y+ Global) in partnership with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) are launching the Resilience+ video diaries – a collection of stories of resilience among people living with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Resilience+ is a research and advocacy initiative led by BSMS and Beyond LIVING, working with national civil society organisations in the UK, Zimbabwe, Philippines, Argentina, and Trinidad. Additional support is provided by the UKRI Higher Education Innovation Fund.
There are three specific objectives of Resilience+:
- To explore the coping mechanisms and resilience of people living with HIV during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- To define the ‘umbrella of resilience’ among people living with HIV by exploring their psychological, social and community sources of strength and agency.
- To co-produce a video on the resilience of people living with HIV during Covid-19, which will aim to spread hope and re-imagine pandemic responses.
We are currently collecting stories from the UK, Zimbabwe, Philippines, Argentina and Trinidad to capture different pandemic, cultural and policy contexts.
