Women-Centred HIV Care Toolkits: Self-advocacy for women living with HIV (French only)

This webinar will be presented in French only.

This webinar will provide an overview of the toolkit for women living with HIV to support its uptake and use by women living with HIV as a self-health advocacy tool. This resource was developed from the findings of the Canada HIV Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study, and created lovingly in partnership with women living with HIV to help women receive the care that they deserve.

Although this webinar is primarily for women living with HIV and their service providers, it will be of interest to community-based service providers as well. All are welcome.

It will provide an overview of key issues facing women living with HIV in Canada; describe trauma-aware and person-centred holistic care for women living with HIV; share some of the strategies from the toolkit for women living with HIV; and offer reflections from community members and service providers about the toolkit.
