GSHI receives CIHR grant to focus on 'Women, HIV and the Law'

GSHI researchers have received a new CIHR-funded grant to review global evidence, gaps in policy and practice, and inform research forward focused on the impacts of the criminalization of HIV on women's lived experiences of disclosing their HIV status in the context of intimate relationships and barriers to accessing care and support services. The new 'Women, HIV and the Law Project' will be led by Co-Principal Investigators Drs. Andrea Krüsi and Kate Shannon, and will build on GSHI's work with the SHAWNA Project (Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS: Women's Longitudinal Needs Assessment), in partnership with the Positive Women's Network (Lead: Marcie Summers) and the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network (Leads: Alison Symington and Cecile Kazatchkine).
