4M has partnered with other organisations and you can access more resources below:
Find Your Four
4M Net members were involved in the co-creation of the incredibly informative Find Your Four resources. Developed and co-created with Gilead Sciences and HIV community organisations.
This is a resource that focuses on four things (our mind, our body, our everyday life and our support), that people with HIV can think about to help us live well with HIV.
In March 2023, 4MNet mentor mothers participated in a deep dive session to contribute to the MumPredict research focused on improving care for pregnant women & birthing people with 2 or more long-term conditions.
Check the website https://mumpredict.org/mum-predict/ for more details on the research.
