Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP) is an evidence-based program, developed by Stanford University, for people living with HIV. The program includes integrating medication regimens, learning to cope with emotions such as fear and isolation, incorporating daily exercise, better nutrition, and more.


Positive Self-Management for HIV is designed to enhance regular treatment and HIV-specific education. Volunteer Workshop Leaders teach those living with HIV the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health as well as to help them keep active in their lives.
