Biography: 

Dr. Carmen Logie joined the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work in 2013 as an Assistant Professor and is currently an Associate Professor. She is an Adjunct Scientist at Women’s College Research Institute. She holds the Canadian Research Chair in Global Health Equity and Social Justice with Marginalized Populations.

Dr. Logie’s research program advances understanding of, and develops interventions to address, stigma and other social ecological factors associated with HIV and STI prevention and care. She is particularly interested in understanding and addressing intersectional stigma and its sexual and reproductive health impacts, with a focus on HIV and STI. Her current research focuses on HIV/STI prevention, testing and care cascades in Canada, Uganda and Jamaica with people living with HIV, refugee and other displaced youth, LGBT communities, Indigenous youth, and persons at the intersection of these identities.

Dr. Logie has been awarded funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), CIHR Clinical Trials Network, Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council of Canada, Grand Challenges Canada, Canada Research Chairs, and Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), to lead global research focused on sexual health and rights. She directs the CFI ‘Stigma & Sexual Health Interventions to Nurture Empowerment’ (SSHINE) Lab. Her co-edited book LGBT Mental Health: International Perspectives and Experiences, published by the American Psychological Association, is forthcoming in October 2019. She collaborates with the World Health Organization (WHO) and was a guideline development member for the WHO Consolidated Guidelines on Self-care Interventions for Health: Sexual and Reproductive Health & Rights (https://www.who.int/reproductivehealth/publications/self-care-interventions/en/)
