Living with HIV can be different for everyone

Living with HIV means different things to different people, and everyone has unique experiences. Along with our services for all clients, Nine Circles provides a wide variety of supports and services specifically to people living with HIV in Manitoba. These include one on one appointments with members of our team, and group based support. Call 204-940-6000 with questions or email our Health Promotion Coordinator. To find out what’s on in the coming month, have a look at our monthly calendar of events.
