The "Servicepunt", volunteers who are often HIV-positive themselves, can help you with the following:

  • Legal questions
  • Medical questions
  • Questions about activities for and by people with HIV and those affected (such as family and friends)
  • Talking to someone who is also HIV-positive
  • Information about Positive African's Mutual Aid (PAMA), Nieuwe Nederlanders, Jongpositief, Positive Kids (children and their families), Poz&Proud, Positivo, women with HIV, and the Marieke Bevelanderhuis
  • Information about the local branch of the "Hiv Vereniging"
  • Information and support about what you can do if you are dissatisfied with treatment and/or assistance

The "Servicepunt" and new ideas for and by people with HIV and those affected
Are you looking for people who are also HIV-positive and with whom you can develop an idea or plan that would be of benefit for other people with HIV? Are you a family member or friend of someone living with HIV and would like to set-up a support group with others? Do you know any women with HIV and would want to bring them together? Have you been toying with an idea, but are not sure about the next step? Then make yourself known at the "Servicepunt".
There might be HIV-positive people who have ideas or plans that can be of assistance to other people with HIV and their families and/or friends. The "Jongpositief" group is an example of the fruition from such a plan. An idea from a youth with HIV helped along with support from the "Servicepunt". In this way, independent projects can be realised. The "Servicepunt"'s role may be varied. Sometimes, it's merely facilitating discussion so as to aid in further development of a plan. Also, it may be to facilitate coordination between people working with similar plans. The latter, ensures that people with similar plans are in contact with each other. From experience we've learnt that many hands can get the job done. This underlines the fact that more and more HIV-positive people are continuing to work and study, so they are unable, like any other people to spend time individually on volunteer projects.
From the onset, the "Servicepunt" is there to provide support and some direction to your ideas or plans. But they also can help to acquire funding. What form the support takes is dependent on all the affected parties.

What next with your plan?
The fastest way to answer your questions, is to ring this number: 020 689 25 77 between 2 PM and 10 PM on monday, tuesday and thursday. At first you will speak with one of our volunteer workers. They will ensure that within three working days you will be put in contact with someone at the national office of the "Hiv Vereniging".
