Prof. Carmen Logie presents at TEDx UofT on HIV Stigma


How do social and structural contexts affect HIV? Dr. Carmen Logie’s work explores the impact of these factors on HIV risk and resilience and how we can influence these contexts to prevent HIV infection. In 1994, volunteering at the Wellesley Hospital led her to her current CIHR and SSHRC funded studies: using theatre for change to reduce stigma towards sexual and gender minority communities in Swaziland and Lesotho, examining connections between social environments and HIV vulnerability among sexual and gender minority youth in Jamaica, and exploring arts-based HIV prevention strategies in the Northwest Territories grounded in Indigenous knowledge.
