ICAD is pleased to present a webinar with ICAD intern Scott Gould and Board Member Trevor Stratton. Scott, one of ICAD’s International Aboriginal Youth interns, has recently returned from his placement in Kingston, Jamaica where he worked as the Income Generation Projects Assistant with the Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) and Jamaica AIDS Support for Life (JASL).

During his presentation, Scott shared experiences while in Jamaica and reflected on the similarities and differences he observed between HIV/AIDS in Jamaica and in Aboriginal communities in Canada. Together, Scott and Trevor led a discussion exploring these links and the impact that stigma and discrimination has on both communities.
