Verywell Health: How can I find HIV support groups in my community?

Dr. Elopre: Fortunately, a lot of advocates have come out of the HIV epidemic and movement. So you can work with community-based service organizations that specialize in community-facing support around testing and diagnosis.

Usually, you can find a list of those organizations and support groups by searching online for HIV/AIDS organizations in your area. Those resources oftentimes have funding to provide these services specifically for the community.
