Living and working with HIV – Identifying the “unique” and “common” elements of re-entry into employment for HIV infected and non-infected individuals

Presenter(s): Celeste Coetzee

Abstract / Description: 

The seminar aims to highlight the challenges that HIV positive individuals living on HAART face when reconciling the many roles that they assume. The workshop is to be used as an opportunity to stimulate thinking surrounding the “unique” and “common” elements of the decision to re-enter the labour market for HIV infected and non-infected individuals. As well as how the labour of someone who is HIV positive may differ from that of someone who is not infected, and how this will affect whether individuals on HAART are able to secure employment. For further information, contact Celeste Coetzee.

Refreshments and Lunch will be served.
