Moving Mountains HIV/AIDS Community Based Research Conference

 

The Moving Mountains HIV/AIDS Community Based Research Conference took place in Prince George, BC on June 17-19, 2014. This conference was born out of this desire to bring a diverse group of stakeholders from the North together to review research underway and to build the capacity to participate in CBR – all with the goal of strengthening the local response to HIV/AIDS. The conference had a packed program and you will find below a number of presentations that took place over the three days.

Moving Mountains LogoDuring the event, participants participated in a research priority-setting session, and the top priorities are summarized in the Community Report. The full list of priority topics are available here. Also available is the environmental scan of HIV/AIDS research in Northern Canada conducted for Moving Mountains.

We graciously acknowledge that this event took place on the traditional territories of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation and express our gratitude for being able to gather on their traditional territory to learn together.

Presentations:

Go Tell it On a Mountain: HIV/AIDS-Related Research in the North

In these fast-paced session we heard about updates from novel research undertaken in the region.

Research 101: Partnerships, Participation and Processes – Kendra Mitchell-Foster and Carlene Dingwall

You, Me, and the Spaces Between: Reflexivity and Research Priorities Arts-Based Approaches in Health Research – Virginia Russell and Dahne Z. Harding

Moving Mountains was made possible through funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canadian Association of HIV/AIDS Research, and the support of the Pacific AIDS Network, the CIHR CBR Collaborative (A program of REACH) and the Aboriginal HIV/AIDS CBR Collaborative Centre.
