Topic: The Reunion Project (tpan.com/reunion–project). Founded in 2015, TRP are Conveners, Connectors and Creators of content for Long Term Survivors of the HIV epidemic. As such, TRP provides safe spaces to honor the fact that even though they have weathered great adversity and tremendous loss, many have come through the experience with a certain degree of resilience. TRP feels these stories deserve to be told, and shared, to help those who may need assistance in finding their way back out of isolation, depression or post-traumatic stress, which may or may not be a result of the epidemic.
