Free Nursing Webinars 2017: Supporting Safe HIV Disclosure Thursday, November 16th

Free Nursing Webinars 2017

Dear Colleagues,

The Canadian Webinar Series on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights would like to invite you to ‘Save the Date’ for the second of a multi-phase series of webinars focused on key aspects regarding the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV in Canada:

Supporting Safe HIV Disclosure:

Canadian Webinar Series on Implementing the WHO Consolidated Guideline on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women Living with HIV


WHO Consolidated Guideline Executive summary: Click Here

Link to the webinar on the consolidated guideline:

Click Here


The World Health Organization consolidated guideline on the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of women living with HIV is grounded in and advocates for a strengthened, comprehensive, woman-centred approach to SRHR. The guideline outlines evidence-based recommendations and good practice statements for key operational and service delivery issues that need to be addressed in order to uphold human rights and promote gender equality. Unique to the development of this guideline, a global community survey was conducted on the SRHR priorities of women living with HIV. It highlighted challenges experienced by women living with HIV who fear or experience violence to safely disclose their HIV status.

In Canada, many women living with HIV report experiencing, and/or fear experiencing violence and stigma, among other challenges, when disclosing their HIV status to family, friends, service providers, and/or sexual partners; particularly for those who experience multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination. In many cases, disclosure may not be safe or feasible. In Canada, where HIV non-disclosure is criminalized, women living with HIV must navigate additional structural challenges to disclosure.

In response to the need for better guidance on how to ensure the safety of women living with HIV within communities, as well as service and care provision, this webinar highlights current strategies, challenges, and opportunities to support safe HIV disclosure for women and girls living with HIV. The webinar brings together perspectives from women living with HIV, front-line community workers, researchers, clinicians, and policy makers who will share key considerations and highlight research and service gaps from the African, Caribbean, Black community, the Indigenous community, and the importance of integrating principles of the Meaningful Involvement of Women Living with HIV (MIWA) when designing interventions and recognizing women’s resilience.

You are warmly invited to join this webinar on Supporting Safe HIV Disclosure, (in English) Thursday, November 16th, 2017: 9:00-10:30AM PST, 12:00 -1: 30 EST, and 6:00 -7:30PM in Geneva.

Webinar Objectives:

The overall goal of the webinar series is to support implementation of the WHO consolidated guideline on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV.

Specific objectives include to:

•Provide an overview of current research about HIV disclosure in the Canadian context using data from the Canadian HIV Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study (CHIWOS);

•Introduce a toolkit developed by women living with HIV and stakeholders for health and social service providers to support safer HIV disclosure;

•Gain insights from women living with HIV to highlight gaps in research and priority areas for further attention;

•Develop an action plan on to support the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV in the Canadian context, including actions to support safe HIV disclosure

ICN Congress 2019: Invitation to Nursing Scholars to be Abstract Reviewers

ICN Congress 2019: Invitation to Nursing Scholars to be Abstract Reviewers

Hello everyone

My name is Subadhra Rai and I am a nursing lecturer at Nanyang Polytechnic and a board member of the Singapore Nurses Association (SNA).

In 2019, Singapore will be hosting the ICN Congress and nurses from around the world will come together to share and learn about nursing scholarship and best practices.

I have been given the opportunity to head the scientific programme for the ICN. As a preliminary work, I am trying to collate the names of nursing scholars who would be interested to be on the panel to review abstracts when they are submitted next year. I am trying to include colleagues from all parts of the world so that we have a diverse and inclusive reviewers and also individuals with varied experiences, knowledge and skills.

I am attaching a word document [*see note below] for those nursing colleagues who are interested to complete. When sending the information back to me, could you please write “Reviewer for ICN Abstract” in the subject heading? This is to allow me to open emails that are genuine and not spam.

I am including a link of the ICN event that is listed on the SNA website. We welcome all nursing colleagues but in particular we are looking for nursing scholars from South America, Africa and South Asia as we do not seem to have anyone from these regions.

English will be the main language of review as of now.

Thank you.
