What’s Your Pleasure? Expanding Your Choices on the HIV Prevention Buffet

On Tuesday, 29 June 2021, the AIDS Foundation Chicago, along with community sponsors AVAC, Black AIDS Institute, Desmond Tutu Health Foundation and SisterLove, Inc., held a webinar featuring global HIV prevention research experts coupled with spoken word artistry and a smokin’ DJ (yes, a DJ!). The webinar provided a scientific update on the expansive HIV prevention research pipeline, including a wide array of molecules and modalities as well as multi-purpose technologies, from Desmond Tutu Health Foundation’s Dr. Linda-Gail Bekker. Seasoned community advocates Dazon Dixon Diallo of SisterLove (Atlanta, Johannesburg) and Black AIDS Institute’s Rob Newells (Atlanta) gave their perspectives on the pipeline with a focus on Black cisgender and transgender women and Black gay, same gender loving, and bisexual men.
