Positive perspectives on prevention
Fugues, May 2017
About 15% of the 1028 respondents to our online questionnaire identified themselves as HIV-positive. We held two discussion sessions with gay and bisexual men living with HIV to interpret the information collected from questionnaire respondents. The issues that were discussed – from viral load to PrEP to problems in access to health services – are highlighted in the latest issue of Fugues in an article by Ken Monteith, executive director of COCQ-SIDA and one of the co-principal researchers of the MOBILISE! project (article in French).

Returning to share key results

boomerang
A remarkable number of community members have participated in MOBILISE!
The time has come to share some of the key results of this action research project.
After a very busy in 2016, we worked over the winter to analyze the large quantity of information gathered through our online survey (1028 respondents) and the discussions carried out by more than 20 “community teams.” Over the coming months, the members of our friendly outreach team will be out and about and look forward to hearing your opinions and reactions to what we’re learning through this project. We hope to pique your curiosity and mobilize your interest in the community action that MOBILISE! is undertaking aimed at advancing our rights to sexual health and to health services that meet our needs.

Did you
know … ?

… that in addition to condoms, there are more than 20 other ways to reduce the risk of contracting or transmitting HIV?

Which of these options do you already use?  Which do you want to try out?

With so many tools and approaches now available, too many people don’t know their prevention options or don’t have access to them. This is an unacceptable situation that is contributing to an ongoing HIV epidemic.

Points
of view

A range of project participants and community members will be sharing their thoughts in the coming months on how to improve HIV prevention and sexual health …
