Celebrating Positive Women's Leadership

This year I am thrilled to be attending the PWN-USA Summit, Speak UP! - a 3-day leadership training for women living with HIV. PWN-USA is now a policy and advocacy powerhouse in the US, engaging women in ways that are truly inspiring. They are an example of how to mobilize people living with HIV to impact policy and determine their own solutions to stigma and barriers to equity.

Science Alone Can't Create a Just World

I often talk about what it was like testing HIV-positive in 1992, when the only treatment available was AZT. Today, I consider the bounty of treatments available and the many more in development. I think of what science has done for me, this field, and for so many others like me. Yet science alone can’t create a just world. In its purest form, science can be cold, calculated, and simply focused on what can be proven true or false. Science has delivered both cures and bombs, has been used for both good and bad. While science has the potential to fix much of what ails us — it won’t work for the advancement of us all without being firmly steeped in and led by our values.

REPRIEVE Trial Investigators Launch "Follow YOUR Heart" Campaign for Women Living with HIV

Research shows that women are often underrepresented in HIV clinical trials. In fact, a study recently published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes found that less than a quarter of clinical trial participants for antiretroviral medications are women. Women's participation in HIV clinical trials is crucial to ensure findings help improve the health of both women and men living with HIV.

Healing Women with HIV Using Trauma-Informed Care

On October 23rd the US Positive Women’s Network (PWN) organized local events across the U.S. for the second annual National Day of Action to End Violence Against Women Living with HIV. The Day seeks to stop violence against women with HIV and support policies and programs that promote safety and healing.

“Taking HIV Prevention to Church”

Everywhere you look in New Orleans, the face of God follows. Our football team is composed of Saints. A classic image of our city is St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square with its three black spires pointed toward the heavens despite that its foundation is below sea level. There are streets named for Christian martyrs, as well as Piety Street, Annunciation Street, and the most straightforward of all, Religious Street. Although many faiths are practiced freely in New Orleans, including Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, and even Santeria, the Christian influence on the city is perhaps the oldest and most pronounced in its landscape.

Beyond Testing: Empowering Women to Pursue Healthy Lives

While I still have a lot to learn and do during my service, I appreciate each moment with my clients. I am part of a conversation; an exploration of a complex yet often overlooked human experience. While subtle, I can see that I am offering something beyond testing – I’m offering dignity, a break from fear, from the unknown, and from stigma.
