This week, AVAC is hosting two webinars, each bringing focus to different challenges facing HIV prevention right now.
First up is Tuesday’s webinar, May 21, 9-10:30 EDT, Breaking the Cycle of Transmission: Increasing uptake and effective use of HIV prevention among high-risk adolescent girls and young women in South Africa—quantitative findings & segmentation. Recording available.
Presented by the HIV Prevention Market Manager, this webinar is the second in a series presenting findings from research on what encourages or discourages the effective use of HIV prevention among adolescent girls and young women. Check out the first webinar in the multi-part series, which covered the qualitative results.
Next up, on Thursday, May 23, 9-10am EDT is The Growing Epidemic of Vaccine Hesitancy and the Implications for Global Health. Recording available.
Join us to hear Heidi Larson, the Director of The Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene discuss what is called vaccine hesitancy and its implications across global health. We’ll also be joined by Laura Lopez Gonzalez, deputy editor at Bhekisisa, a health journalism center of the Mail & Guardian newspaper in South Africa. They’ll share perspectives on broader vaccine issues that impact the AIDS response as they play out in the media.
Bring your questions and join the conversation!
