Join us for our next CANFAR2025 Conversation next Thursday February 18th, 2021 at 2:00pm EST on CANFAR’s Instagram Live (@canfar1987).
Our virtual talk series connects members within the CANFAR community, speaking to issues and initiatives involved with ending the HIV epidemic in Canada by the year 2025. Through each #CANFAR2025 Conversation, our guests help deconstruct and apply the research, trends, and obstacles affecting the HIV/AIDS community across Canada.
Help us welcome Tola Mbulaheni, Researcher at the University of Toronto and CANFAR Grant Recipient. In honour of Black History Month, we’re shining a spotlight on the critical research examining Black women’s experiences when accessing HIV-related services. Hosted by CANFAR’s very own, Muluba Habanyama, this is a conversation you don’t want to miss!
“Black women continue to be disproportionately impacted by the HIV epidemic in Canada, comprising 36.5% of all reported HIV cases among women in 2016. As the HIV sector engages discussions on ending HIV, it will be become increasingly important to think about the ways racism uniquely shapes the epidemic for Black women and sustains service access barriers to effective prevention and treatment interventions.”
Tune in next Thursday February 18th, 2021 at 2:00pm EST on CANFAR’s Instagram Live (@canfar1987) to join our chat with Tola Mbulaheni hosted by CANFAR National Ambassador, Muluba Habanyama.
