In this video recorded as part of Kirby Institute Seminar Series (UNSW Sydney) on 30 March 2021, Aaron Cogle, NAPWHA Executive Director, talks about the important role people with HIV play in HIV-related research and where the gaps are in our current understanding.
People with HIV have a long history of involvement in HIV-related research. However, their specific role in HIV prevention has yet to be fully understood. The presentation analysed what constitutes the ‘meaningful involvement’ of people with HIV, how we move beyond mere involvement to something more substantial, and what we can gain by changing the narrative around HIV prevention research.
It also showcases how NAPWHA utilises research about positive people and where the gaps are in our current understanding of the Australian HIV-positive population.
