ASSHH UK Programme.pdf

On 20 June 2016 STRIVE co-hosted a one-day meeting with ASSHH UK, a network that aims to bring together UK-based researchers working on HIV in the humanities and social sciences. The meeting was organised by researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, University of Glasgow, University of Northampton, Goldsmiths and the School of Oriental and African Studies, with a small grant from the Wellcome Trust as well. The action-packed ASSHH UK conference provided a platform for people from the field to come together and discuss issues within the UK and beyond. Below, we are pleased to share some of the presentations as well as videos taken from the live webcast.
