GMFA was founded in 1992, as Gay Men Fighting AIDS. GMFA’s goal was to produce HIV prevention campaigns that reflect the lives, experiences and needs of gay men. GMFA harnesses the skills, experiences and knowledge of our 160 volunteers, most of them gay men, to deliver our work.
GMFA’s work includes projects designed by and for gay men living with HIV, including advertising campaigns, booklets and an information website at www.gmfa.org.uk/positive. To find out more about GMFA and our work, visit www.gmfa.org.uk/aboutgmfa, or follow us on twitter @GMFA_UK
GMFA is part of HERO (the Health Equality and Rights Organisation), which campaigns to improve the health of all LGB&T people

The National Long Term Survivors Group was set up to provide support for people who had been living with HIV and AIDS for 5 or more years. The group provides a safe place to discuss and share experiences. The “Living Proof” retreats have been running for nearly 20 years and, with a growing membership, remain as strong and necessary as ever. www.nltsg.org.uk
