What is PLDI?

The Positive Leadership Development Institute (PLDI) Australia and Aotearoa, New Zealand offers people living with HIV (PLHIV) an opportunity to identify and develop their leadership and resilience skills.

• We believe that strong leaders create stronger communities.

• We honour the leadership of the past; value the leadership of today; and

• We inspire leadership for the future.

The PLDI program aims to create a network of informed and empowered PLHIV who will participate in and influence their local communities.

The PLDI exists with the purpose of supporting people who are living with HIV to realise their leadership potential and increase their capacity to participate meaningfully in community life.
