Ashley Rose Murphy
For our third instalment of CANFAR2025 Conversations we were pleased to welcome CANFAR National Ambassador, Ashley Rose Murphy, hosted by CANFAR National Spokesperson, Valerie Pringle. As a thought-provoking closing to Women’s History Month, we shone a light on how HIV affects women in Canada to reminds us to continue these important conversations throughout the year. Women make up nearly 25% of the total Canadian population affected by HIV, with new infection rates highest in the age category of 25-34 years old. In our conversation with Ashley Rose, we hear about her experience being born and growing up with HIV & learn what we can do prevent stigma and stop the spread among younger generations.
