Communication and HIV & AIDS Working Group
This Working Group aims to develop an overview of existing and completed work in this area to identify gaps and to determine what work exists, worldwide and across agencies; to analyse this information and to draw up an IAMCR research agenda. This group is working towards research completion, publishing and distribution of findings.
The purpose is to examine different perspectives from around the world on the enormous challenge HIV & AIDS presents to the field of communication—in terms of programmes, research, ethics, and many other cultural issues. This group offers a forum for testing and critically reviewing interventions and policy employed to change behaviours. Closely aligned with the IAMCR theme on Policy & Law, this working group is often concerned with specific communities of actors and so is located under this theme as well.
