REGISTER: CIRA Talk: "Resilience in HIV and Aging Research in Response to Crises: Lessons from Ukraine"

In this talk, the speakers will give an overview of the team's current HIV/AIDS research in Ukraine, paying special attention to how they have been adapting to ongoing crises (first COVID-19 pandemic, and now the war) in terms of their research questions/foci and methods. They will share some findings on how older people with HIV (OPWH, defined as ≥50 years) cope during the war with daily life challenges and HIV and non-HIV care; and how HIV and addiction clinicians have adapted their care provision processes to start creating a 'New Normal' in response to the crisis. The team will also comment on challenges to conducting research during crises, strategies to overcome these challenges, efforts to maintain productivity and communication with research collaborators, and considerations in developing and conducting HIV/AIDS-related research in humanitarian contexts.
