The social and ethical implications of HIV cure research

The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University is seeking participants for a new research project:

The social and ethical implications of HIV cure research

There are currently a number of clinical trials happening in Australia and across the world exploring new approaches to the development of a cure for HIV.

While it is unlikely a cure for HIV will be available for many years (or decades) we are interested in how people living with HIV feel about HIV cure research and the media attention HIV cure research has attracted.

Would you have a spare hour to participate in an interview?

We are looking for:

  • People Living with HIV
  • men and women
  • aged over 18-years

Interviews will be conducted with a researcher from the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University. They can be conducted face-to-face at a location convenient to you or via telephone and will take about one-hour.

Interested?

Then please contact Andrew Westle via email to A.Westle@latrobe.edu.au or ph: (03) 9479 8700.
