ICAD Lunch and Learn Series: Going Glocal – Global Connections with Local Realities
How are social media and ICT being used to promote sexual health and to engage individuals and communities in the response to HIV?
ICAD invites you to join us for a one-hour webinar featuring a presentation of key lessons learned from the development of ICAD’s Digital Liaisons website and an interactive discussion with representatives of two of our featured case studies. Learn from the experiences of others by hearing how community-based organizations are using social media and ICT in interesting and innovative ways.
Join us for a conversation with:
Robin Montgomery, ICAD (“ICAD Goes Virtual”)
Laura Keegan, HIV Edmonton (“HIV Edmonton: A very social organization”)
Sophie Wertheimer & Kate Alexander, writers of Digital Liaisons
The annual CAHR Conference is the premier gathering in Canada for those working in all disciplines of HIV/AIDS research, as well as policy makers, persons living with HIV and other individuals committed to ending the pandemic.
HR17, the 25th Harm Reduction International (HRI) Conference, will be 2017’s largest international harm reduction event. It will bring together those at the heart of the harm reduction response – from practitioners and peers to advocates and researchers – for four packed days of presentations, workshops, panel discussions, films, exhibitions, networking events and more.
First held in Liverpool 27 years ago, HRI conferences have since been staged in major cities across the globe. This year, we’re returning to North America for the first time since our Vancouver conference in 2006. HR17 will be hosted on 14th-17th May 2017 in Montréal, Canada, in partnership with the Association des Intervenants en Dépendance du Québec (AIDQ).
As Canada begins to adopt a more forward-looking approach to drugs, in the rest of the region – and much of the planet – progress is still painfully slow. In response, HR17 will help build a global harm reduction movement that learns, shares and cooperates to build a world where people benefit from good drug policies, rooted in dignity, health and human rights.
World AIDS Day, December 1, which also launches the start of Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week in Canada, is a time for reflection: on what we have achieved with regard to the national and global response to HIV, and what we still must achieve.
World AIDS Day is a day dedicated to commemorate those who have passed on and to raise awareness about AIDS and the global spread of the HIV virus.
The first World AIDS Day was held in 1988 after health ministers from around the world met in London, England and agreed to such a day as a way of highlighting the enormity of the AIDS pandemic and nations’ responsibility to ensure universal treatment, care and support for people living with HIV and AIDS.
