#WISER2020 - Our Vision for Indigenous Health

Overall Goal

Recognizing that we work within colonial contexts, our Pre-conference will provide time and space to consider Indigenous relationships and approaches to land, water, people, systems, and policies impacting our experience addressing HIV and AIDS. We intend to consider how the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and global targets for HIV, hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections, and tuberculosis, are implemented for Indigenous Peoples. Grounded in the experience of Indigenous peoples, we will celebrate resilience and resistance necessary to improve holistic social and cultural determinants of health.

The objectives (intentions):

  • Strengthen our relationships
  • Improve awareness, understanding, and accountability
  • Articulate, translate, interpret, and achieve targets
  • Share promising (wise) practices, strategies, and approaches

Setting a Clear Vision (#WISER2020) by weaving experience, theory, and practice in HIV and AIDS…recognize and strengthen sovereign Indigenous, peer-led, wellness (trauma) informed, distinctions based, culturally safe, strength-based, solution focused, decolonizing strategies and tactics that are required for success.

Indigenous Peoples have diverse identities. As a Priority Population within the global HIV/AIDS movement, participants will explore how identity shapes roles, responsibilities, and experience as HIV shifts from a terminal condition to a chronic one, for those with access to life saving medications. Gender, sexual orientation, location, position, age, class, race all add up to multiple social identities that intersect and affect Indigenous health and wellbeing.
