Positive Outcomes

When: March 30, 2016 at 6:00pm - 9pm

Where: SFU Harbour Center

Stigma surrounding HIV aimed at, and perpetuated within, marginalized communities creates significant barriers to healthcare that prevent positive individuals from living healthy and dignified lives. Rather than acting as a deterrent to lower transmission rates, the criminalization of non-disclosure only adds to a long list of negative determinants of health that force the individual to have choose between personal safety and disclosure.

Working together with guest speakers, the SFSS, YouthCO, students, and community members, we aim to create a dialogue to help participants become better acquainted with the ins and outs of how the criminalization of HIV affects a wide range of communities. For those already well versed in the topic, we seek to provide a platform for them to redistribute their knowledge, and an opportunity to connect with other active voices and organizations in their community. 

We welcome folks who are still learning about this topic, and aim to make this event a place where everyone can ask questions and learn more. 

Location: room 1420—1430, SFU Harbour Center
Sponsored by the SFSS and YouthCO
