Risky Women: Disrupting Simple Notions of Women's HIV Risk
December 2, 2013
Monday, December 9, 2013: 11:00 AM 12:30 PM EST
In 2012, the FDA approved Truvada for PrEP use among adult women and men who are "at risk" of HIV infection in the U.S. But exactly which women are at risk, how such risk is defined and understood, and whether or not women see themselves in this way is not entirely clear. Speakers in this webinar will present what is known from social and behavioral science and community experience about the definitions and perceptions of HIV risk among women that are relevant to their potential PrEP use. The webinar is co-sponsored by SisterLove, Inc., AVAC, HIV Prevention Justice Alliance, National Women's Health Network and the Well Project.
