WILLOW is an evidence-based public health intervention/strategy, designed for heterosexual women living with HIV of any race or ethnicity. It is implemented as a peer-led, group-level intervention that is co-facilitated by two adult women, one of whom is living with HIV and considered a peer of the intervention participants. WILLOW should be implemented in a community-based setting, using an “educational and informational” focus rather than a “counseling or therapy” focus.
