The project was launched to support HIV + women in British Columbia to share dialogue about being HIV positive, to provide access to medical and treatment information, peer support, counselling, resources, education, ‘experts’, such as doctors, lawyers, nutritionists and treatment experts, and to break-down isolation and stigma faced by HIV + women, particularly women in rural areas. WAVE was modelled as a ‘virtual drop-in clinic’ website, and contained question and answer online modules, bulletin boards for HIV + women and community members, and resources such as newsletters, brochures, and links to other important websites.
Record types in the sub-series include project reports, correspondence, financial records, strategy documents, web design and marketing proposals, press releases, and materials related to website such as domain name purchase and IBM customer agreement.
