Canada’s peer-driven HIV magazine again included in Healthline’s Best HIV/AIDS Blogs of the Year

Another award for PositiveLite.com

For the fifth year in a row, PositiveLite.com has made Healthline’s honour role of the world’s best HIV blogs. The full list appears here

PositiveLite.com congratulates its fellow awardees. 

Healthline is a social media-based giant, a provider of health information headquartered in San Francisco and helps people better understand and live with medical conditions. It is generally regarded as the number two most consulted health information resource in North America.

Ironically, PositiveLite.com has been involved, along with the Prevention Access Campaign U=U movement, in a protracted challenge to the topicality of HIV information on the Healthline website.

Other winners announced this month include well-known establishment names such as POZ.com, AIDSmap and The Body. Poz advocates like Mark S K King and Josh Robbins also make the list. 

PositiveLite.com was founded ten years ago by Toronto activist Brian Finch. It remains entirely staffed by (unpaid) people living with HIV and relies on advertising revenues, rather than government subsidies, for its funding.
