The Danish Centre for Migration, Ethnicity and Health and School of Global Health are pleased to welcome Carmen Logie for the next Global Health Talks:

THE POWER OF COMMUNITY: LESSONS LEARNED FROM WORKING WITH AFFECTED COMMUNITIES IN SEXUAL HEALTH AND HIV

ABOUT THE TALK:
This talk will explore how lessons learned from community-based global HIV research can inform our approach to conceptualizing and implementing research and practice with and for communities who are often marginalized and excluded from social, political, economic systems. Applying an intersectional stigma perspective, examples from three HIV research projects are explored: community-health worker delivered HIV prevention with internally displaced women in Haiti; arts-based self-acceptance intervention with African, Caribbean and Black transgender women in Canada; and HIV testing with urban refugee and displaced youth in Uganda. This talk centers the importance of storytelling, love and solidarity, and critical hopefulness in HIV research.

Dr. Carmen Logie is the Canada Research Chair in Global Health Equity and Social Justice with Marginalized Populations and an Associate Professor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto.
