HIVE’s Shannon Weber is featured in Positively Aware‘s “The PrEP Issue”! Check her full profile out on page 14. (The pdf is available below.) Kellee Terrell writes,

“Since 2005, Weber has helped more than 250 women around the U.S. find providers in their area who support them in navigating safer conception options. In addition, she works with providers, offers preconception and prenatal counseling, gives webinars and trainings for other organizations, and has even created instructional videos for providers to educate them about PrEP.”

Shannon is truly a pioneer, and we at HIVE are so proud of her and her amazing vision. She believes that,

“…having HIV, or having a partner living with HIV, shouldn’t change our opinions about who has the right to have a child.”

Shannon knows that people need to be able to make their own decisions when it comes to their health and that,

“Women who want PrEP to conceive are not asking for zero percent risk, they just want help to reduce their risk.”

HIVE is also listed on the “PrEP Resources” page (pg 20) that was compiled by Alan McCord:

“HIVEonline: Videos and information for cisgender and transgender women. hiveonline.org/for-you

We are also featured in the “Of special interest” column (also on page 20):

“HIVE … offers information for people contemplating or taking PrEP and for their providers. Weber, a champion for perinatal care for HIV-positive women and reproductive rights for all people living with HIV, pioneered work that provides new options for mixed HIV status partnerships (couples, surrogacy, singles) who want to safely have children.”
