FIFSW faculty members Professor Peter Newman and Associate Professor Carmen Logie have published articles in a special issue of the Journal of the International AIDS Society. The virtual open access issue commemorates the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia and focuses on addressing sexual and gender minority health and human rights in the global response to HIV.
Newman’s article, which he co-authored with Ashley Lacombe-Duncan (MSW 2010; PhD 2018), among others, explores the experience of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBM) in “considering, accessing and using (or not using) PrEP” (a treatment that helps prevent people who are HIV negative from contracting the virus). Among the goals of their study was “to understand emerging sexual health, social and community issues among GBM in the PrEP era.
Logie’s study examined associations between HIV-related stigma, recent violence and depression among women living with HIV in Canada, and is one of the first longitudinal studies to explore this topic.
