"It was not easy”: Trajectories of Social Care and Supports among Immigrant Women Living with HIV
In Canada, racialized women are disproportionally affected by HIV. As disproportionate numbers of new cases of people living with HIV are from so-called HIV-endemic countries, access to care remains a priority. A social phenomenon, HIV is accompanied by deep stigma and discrimination, affecting women’s access to care and support. In this session we present and discuss the experiences of a diverse group of immigrant African women living with HIV as they struggle to make Winnipeg their home. The focus of this presentation will be on social care services and supports.
When: January 11, 2016 - 11:30AM - 1PM
Where: United Way of Winnipeg, 580 Main Street
