In my previous blogs I spoke a lot about what life was like being diagnosed with HIV. I spoke of the shame and guilt I felt along with the shame people placed upon me because of this disease.

The 2014 WRI meeting focused on the role that violence and trauma play for women in HIV acquisition, access to care, care delivery, retention, and wellness outcomes.

Learn about GYN care, what to expect with breast and pelvic exams, questions to ask your provider, and more.

The 2009 WRI meeting aimed to identify and then prioritize research questions in order to determine the area of focus that would most significantly impact our understanding of HIV disease in women.
