The Well Project also offers community support and advocacy development initiatives to address stigma, discrimination, and the need for enhanced leadership for women and girls living with HIV across the globe. The A Girl Like Me blog is a unique support community that enables women and girls with HIV to share their stories and experiences in a safe place. In 2003, The Well Project established the Women’s Research Initiative on HIV/AIDS (WRI) to elevate, enhance, and expedite HIV treatment and prevention research on women and girls and identify gaps in clinical care and research.
