New project on Māori and HIV prevention

New project on Māori and HIV prevention

Whakauae is embarking on a new project looking at Māori experiences of HIV prevention and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) access. This ‘pilot project’, which is designed to inform a subsequent larger project on Māori and HIV, is co-led by Associate Professor Clive Aspin, Dr Tanya Allport, Whakauae Director Dr Amohia Boulton, and Whakauae’s Masters Scholarship recipient Ben Barton.

This new project is not just about research but also about strengthening partnerships and fostering collective change-making. We are collaborating closely with key stakeholders, including Toitu te Ao, Wai Rangahau/Te Whānau o Waipareira, and Auckland Sexual Health Service, to ensure a holistic and impactful approach. Through this short-term project, we aim not only to inform larger research inquiries but also to engage in early dissemination efforts, including journal papers and various knowledge-sharing platforms.

Stay tuned for updates and insights along the way as we navigate through the complexities of Māori experiences in HIV prevention and PrEP access, aiming for meaningful impact, positive change, and a deeper understanding of the issues at hand.
