It’s been a busy month here at the W3 Project!
We have started gathering the evidence we located against our W3 Indicators . It’s so exciting to see the stories of peer work’s impacts coming together.
We have also been presenting (and preparing to present) our work in various places. Keep reading to find out more!
Webinar: Improving health outcomes for LGBTIQ+ people and communities
Last month, we presented a webinar for LGBTIQ+ Health Australia. It was a really great opportunity to connect to, and engage with, Australia’s incredible LGBTIQ+ peer worker community.
The webinar covered:
- A brief history of the W3 Project and how we created the W3 Framework
- An overview of what the W3 Framework is and how it works
- How using the W3 Framework can help LGBTIQ+ peer work
- What using the W3 Framework might look like in practice
You can download the slideshow now from our publications page. Once LGBTIQ+ Health have published the webinar recording, we will share that with you too. Watch this space.
The 24th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2022)
Our lead investigator Graham headed to beautiful Montreal for AIDS 2022 with three posters:
- From the W3 Project:
- From the PLHIV Peer Navigator Implementation Study:
AIDS 2022 theme was ‘re-engagement’ — and that was certainly the flavour. Graham and colleagues had the opportunity to engage with the many peer and community-led programs and community-led research initiatives around the world, and the progress that has occurred in advocacy, activism, and research since the last face-to-face International AIDS Conference in 2018.
If you’re eager for more information, the AIDS 2022 rapporteurs page provides links to conference summaries and key outcomes.
