HIV in My Day: Reflecting Back, Looking Forward

Reprinted from Vancouver Island PWA Society site


HIV in My Day: Reflecting Back, Looking Forward is an oral history project that hopes to document the beginning of the HIV epidemic (1980s) in Victoria and Vancouver Island’s history by having those with lived experience and their caregivers recount their experiences.

We are an inter-generational community-based research team and are holding this event as community information and discussion session about our proposed oral history research project. At this event, we will discuss how our project came to be and what we hope to achieve.

We will invite the audience to ask questions and provide feedback. Attendance is free. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in this important project, please attend!
