WHAI will be working on a situational analysis project this year to identify key issues affecting the capacity of communities in our area to support women living with and at heightened vulnerability for HIV.
Situational Analysis is a form of applied research carried out to support program planning and development. Its aim is to identify strengths and challenges of a program’s population and the environment in which they live.
Our WHAI program will be exploring HIV testing and women, specifically looking at how to increase the number and frequency of testing in target female populations. The situational analysis is aligned with the HIV Prevention, Engagement, and Care Cascade and the Ontario HIV Strategy.
As this work unfolds our WHAI program will update the blog to share our developments.
