presentation
posted on 23.04.2020 by Amanda Wilson, Iain Williamson
Guest Presentation for the Pro-Vice Chancellor of Research's World AIDS Day Event, "HIV in Global Context: Multidisciplinary Perspectives."

Event description

HIV remains a significant global public health challenge. Although now a manageable chronic condition, HIV can have serious health implications if left untreated. The most common additional condition of HIV is poor mental health, which can be attributed in part to social stigma. In the era of effective HIV treatment and biomedical approaches to HIV prevention, we have set ourselves the ambitious target of zero new HIV infections and ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. The speed lectures and expert panel will consider the feasibility of this target, focusing on the opportunities and challenges and using one of the most powerful tools we possess: research.


This event is part of the Doctoral College Series, a series of events showcasing our PhD students and DMU's research excellence. Each event focuses on one of the SDGs, illustrating how the SDGs are embedded in our research.

Sexualized Drug Use among Gay, Bisexual and Men who have Sex with Men in Leicester: A Mixed Method Study

Despite occurring everywhere, research on ‘chemsex’ is overwhelming conducted on gay, bi-sexual and MSM in London. Outside of London, Sexual Health Clinics report conducting ‘chemsex’ consultations on a monthly basis. This study begins to close the gap in research by looking at the experiences of sexualized drug use in Leicester.
