The HIV Intersections Community of Practice presents
The 2019 HIV and Intersectionality Symposium
With optional 8:30am 'Introduction to HIV' session
Please join us for the 2019 HIV and Intersectionality Symposium. Coinciding with World AIDS Day 2019, we will take a critical look at the intersection points of HIV and people’s lives, with particular emphasis on people and communities that are affected by HIV but who have not been at the centre of the Australian HIV response.
What is intersectionality, anyway? How can we consider intersectionality in the planning and practice of research, health promotion, service provision, clinical care and social support of people and populations affected by HIV?
Themes will include:
- Intersections of colonisation and racism
- Intersections of sexuality and gender
- Intersectionality and criminalised populations
- Intersectionality and evidence
- Intersectionality, peers and meaningful engagement
This symposium will consist of a highly interactive mix of short presentations and facilitated discussions.
Speakers and panellists include:
- Chiedza Malunga (Monash Health)
- Hope Mathumbu (Victorian African HIV Network)
- Peter Waples Crowe (Thorne Harbour Health)
- Anthony McCarthy (Living Positive Victoria)
- Heather Mugwagwa (Positive Women Victoria)
- Dr Jennifer Power (Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society)
- Hunter Morgan (Harm Reduction Victoria)
- Vixen Collective
Plus more to come!
