Canadian HIV Women's Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study - Prioritizing the Health Needs of Positive Aboriginal Women (CHIWOS-PAW) Bridge Grant.



This quilt, based on the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, was created by Indigenous women living with HIV.  Using images and words, women expressed their thoughts on living with HIV, their definitions of health and wellness, the barriers facing them and their experiences in accessing services.

Completed projects:

Developing and Applying Theoretical Frameworks in the Epidemiology of Sexually Transmitted Infections.
One of the goals of this grant is to quantify the natural history of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and in particular, research into the natural history of Chlamydia trachomatis through the secondary analysis of a large historical population based cohort, constructed from records held by Manitoba Health.

Global exchanges, local interventions: Meeting the HIV prevention and health care needs of men who have sex with men (MSM) in Canada, Kenya and China.
In this project, we propose to establish a community-based intervention research (CBIR) team and program to A) generate new knowledge around the barriers that inhibit MSM from accessing HIV-related health services; and B) to foster new opportunities for co-learning, by creating a dynamic global interchange of intervention knowledge as our team proceeds through intervention design, service delivery, surveillance, and refinement in Canada, Kenya and China.

Improving infectious disease treatment outcomes among vulnerable populations.
The aim of the project is to improve HIV treatment outcomes among vulnerable populations in Manitoba specifically, in Canada, and more broadly in low and middle-income countries such as India.
