Friday December 2ND AT 12:00-1:00 pm EDT
People with disabilities are at least as vulnerable to HIV as the general population, but are often missing from prevention, care and treatment initiatives. People with HIV can experience episodic disabilities but are also largely missing from disability community initiatives. Kate Welsh from Realize will present this webinar on a micro environmental scan conducted this fall looking at the intersections between HIV/AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) and Disability Service Organizations (DSOs) in the Greater Toronto Area. The websites of ASOs and DSOs were reviewed in order to determine preliminary access information that impacts people living with HIV and people who have disabilities. This webinar will explore some of the gaps between the HIV and disability service sectors and will raise issues to consider in bridging these gaps.
This webinar is free to attend. Realize is hosting this webinar at the intersection of both World AIDS Day (December 1st) and the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3rd) to commemorate both occasions.
