What’s hot in HIV research?

Welcome to the Pacific AIDS Network’s May review of What’s HOT in HIV Research! It’s been a very busy few months here at PAN since our über exciting Knowledge to Action conference in February followed by the Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR) conference in Vancouver. As usual, I find myself riding the waves of Twitter, research news from here and there, and information from various listservs, and finding that a few things have tweaked my interest over the past while. Here’s

In the third part of a series about community-based research probing barriers to intimacy in people living with HIV, Megan DePutter features interviews from two research participants – Advisory Committee member Iris and Peer Research Assistant Tim.

Show Me The Love Part Three

In Show Me the Love Part Two, I wrote about the experience of conducting community-based research for the first time, and what it meant for us at ACG to build capacity in our agency. But enough about what I think. In the videos* below, you’ll hear some different perspectives - one from an HIV positive Advisory Committee member (Iris), and one from our Peer Research Assistant (Tim).  In these clips, Iris and Tim answered questions about their thoughts and experiences with the research proj

Show Me the Love - Part Two

published: October, 09, 2012 Categories // Research, Sexual Health, Health, Living with HIV, Sex and Sexuality

Megan DePutter explains how “Show Me The Love”, the AIDS Committee of Guelph and Wellington County’s probe in to barriers to love, sex and intimacy for people living with HIV built her agency’s capacity to conduct community based research.

Show Me the Love - Part Two

One of the interesting features about the grant that we received was that this was a “capacity-building fund.” Capacity building is really about acquiring resources – in this case knowledge, skills and networks – that give a person or organization the ability to do something new. In this case that ‘something’ is the ability to conduct community-based research (CBR).  I believe that having some basic understanding of research methods and process is important, because it empowers p

Megan DePutter from Guelph Ontario looks at research her agency is conducting about barriers to sex among people living with HIV

Show me the love – a second look

Just over a year ago, our Executive Director (Tom Hammond,) and I were returning home from the OHTN research conference, feeling inspired by the number of exciting and innovative research projects being shared. We started to think aloud about the kind of research we would do in our community if we had the means, and we immediately got talking about barriers to sex among people living with HIV. We’re doing this study to better understand what these barriers are all about and how we can addre

OHTN and CATIE give PositiveLite.com the nod

I can’t think of much better news to kick off World AIDS Week than to hear that CATIE is now collaborating with PositiveLite in a similar fashion to what the OHTN announced that they would be doing earlier this month. You can read CATIE’s inaugural post here.   I'm a big fan of both these organizations. I really think this is a win-win situation. Or perhaps that should be a win-win-win situation, as three parties are involved. For PositiveLite it means additional quality content
