Description

OPENING DOORS

As our understanding of HIV continues to increase so do the challenges with which we are faced.

Opening Doors is designed to provide opportunities for education, support and networking.

Let’s get together to talk and listen. Let’s work together to break down the barriers of stigma and isolation. We can work to open new doors and close old ones. No one can do it alone, so let’s challenge the issues together.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • People living with HIV
  • Front Line Workers
  • Caregivers
  • Volunteers
  • Partners
  • Families
  • Friends

There is a maximum of 4 representatives per agency. If spaces are available after the closing date, agencies may request additional representatives.

Opening Keynote for 2018: Molly Bannerman, Director from WHAI

WHAI is a community response to HIV and AIDS among cis and trans women in Ontario, with a focus on the structural and societal factors that increase risk factors for HIV. In 2016 WHAI conducted a province wide situational analysis looking at the context of HIV in communities, the lived experiences of those living with HIV and facing systemic risk for HIV acquisition, and relationships between organizations and community groups. Using findings from this process, we began to implement Collaborative Collective Impact work across Ontario with a focus on 7 key areas. These 7 areas are: HIV disclosure; stigma, discrimination and institutional violence; gender based violence; women and harm reduction; community and emotional wellness; economic security and health care centered on women’s needs and lived experiences. This session will provide an overview of WHAI, the situational analysis findings, and our use of the Collative Impact model to create collaborative and important change across Ontario.

Closing Keynote: Yvette Perreault

Impact Debriefing: Using our experience of loss in HIV/AIDS to Support a Community dealing with Opioid Overdoses.
