Karumah provides support to People Living With HIV in the Hunter-New England region through outreach, case management, community & social support, advocacy, peer leadership, and education & training. These services are also available to the partners, carers, family, and supporters of People Living With HIV.
Our programs are built around a model of chronic care self-management which recognises people’s knowledge and experience of their condition and supports them to become effective managers of their own physical, mental, and social health. We use a non-judgmental, evidence-based approach that allows us to adapt and respond to the evolving needs of People Living with HIV.
HIV affects people from all walks of life and access to Karumah services is not limited to any particular demographic, lived experience, or background. Our community is very diverse and we strive for inclusivity and accessibility across our programs and activities.
