Home > News & Activities > News > Join an online event: The future of peer practice

Join us to celebrate the launch of the Australian HIV Peer Support Standards with a lively discussion on the future of peer support practices in HIV and sexual health.

When: Thursday 3 December 2020 from 3PM (AEST)

Peer practices have played a central role in the community response to HIV. Our familiarity with this history can sometimes mask the innovation taking place in this field. This panel discussion is an opportunity to reflect on the potential of a new generation of peer practices that integrate the community response with clinical and social services. Our panel will share their experiences working as and with peers in community and clinical services in the fields of HIV and trans sexual health.

Guests

  • Sarah Feagan, Living Positive Victoria
  • Ruan Uys, Bobby Goldsmith Foundation
  • Liz Duck-Chong, ACON trans[TEST]
  • Dr Vincent Cornelisse, Kirketon Road Centre
