30th, Jun 2022
Positive Life, Northern Ireland’s only charity dedicated to supporting anyone affected by HIV has launched a brand-new project with the aim of tackling the stigma associated with HIV in Northern Ireland. The Kingsbridge Foundation provide their support with funding across the next 5 years.
Positive Life, Northern Ireland’s only charity dedicated to supporting anyone affected by HIV has launched a brand-new project at an event at the Europa Hotel in May 2022 hosted by the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Kate Nicholl.
The Northern Ireland Buyers Club aims to tackle the stigma associated with HIV in Northern Ireland. The Club is membership based and aims to bring together organisations and like-minded philanthropic individuals to support Positive Life, allowing for growth over the five year project.
Mark Regan, CEO of Kingsbridge Healthcare Group and one of the founding members of the Positive Life Buyers Club, said:
“We are very pleased to step out in support of Positive Life to ensure the long-term sustainability of the charity and the vital support it provides to this region.”
“As a project that aims to build lasting relationships that will serve an issue many feel is no longer a major crisis, The NI Buyers Club represents a bold new initiative from Positive Life in its mission to tackle the crippling levels of stigma that still exist in Northern Ireland and through our own Kingsbridge Foundation we are delighted to support this cause.”
In support of this new charity initiative, the Kingsbridge Foundation will fund £5k across the next 5 years to help create a Northern Ireland where a diagnosis attracts no more or less significance than any other serious long-term condition, and where the often paralysing shame and fear are a thing of the past.
