🠘 Back to ARCSHS events

Without meaningful input from peers, public health responses fail to meet the needs of our most marginalised and vulnerable communities. Despite this, peer-led organisations and programs often find it hard to measure and show the full impact and value of their work.

Since 2013, The W3 Project has been collaborating with peer and community organisations to improve our understanding of the role and impact of peer-led responses within Australia’s public health response to HIV and hepatitis C. We developed the W3 Framework, which can help peer responses better understand, evaluate, and improve their work.

The newly published W3 Framework website and guides showcase everything we’ve learned during almost 10 years of research – including providing guidance and tools to help peer-led organisations and programs evaluate their own work more effectively.

Join us as we launch the website and the guide, with guest speakers from some of our partner organisations sharing their own thoughts about the experiences collaborating in this research, how using the W3 Framework has helped them in their own work, and how they think the W3 Framework will continue to help the peer-led blood-borne virus sector into the future.
