Welcome to the POZ Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums. Click here for “Am I Infected?” posting guidelines. Click here for posting guidelines pertaining to all other POZ community forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

  • Product advertisement—including links; banners; editorial content; and clinical trial, study or survey participation—is strictly prohibited by forums members unless permission has been secured from POZ.

Welcome to the POZ Forums!

A new HIV diagnosis is a life-changing experience. Here in this forum you can discuss those changes with other newly diagnosed people and also get information and reassurance from people who have been living with this for years.  You have come to the right place for support and information. Feel free to ask questions or even just come here to vent if that's what you need. Living with HIV can be a rollercoaster ride of emotions and no matter what you're going through, there's sure to be a forum member - or twenty! - who can empathise.

As a newly diagnosed person, you do not HAVE to post here in this particular forum. Feel free to post in any other forum you wish. This forum is provided to make sure your concerns are noticed and you get the help you need during this difficult time.

Be sure to check out the other sections of this website. You will find links to various sections in the upper left-hand corner of any forum page.

In the Lessons section you will find a wealth of information about living with HIV, from starting treatment to disclosure and just about every other thing you need to know.

In the Drugs section you will find every drug used to treat HIV infection, as well as the drugs used to treat side-effects and opportunistic infections.

Don't forget to check out the Blogs, written by fellow forum members. The News section will keep you up to date and you can also sign up for the AIDSmeds.com weekly newsletter to receive the latest news via your email inbox.

We hope you find the POZ Forums and Website to be your one-stop shop for HIV/AIDS information and support. We are pleased you joined us and we look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.
