World AIDS Day takes place on 1st December each year. It is an opportunity to remember the people who have died of AIDS-related illnesses, and to celebrate the progress made with treating HIV, and show support for people living with HIV.
The INTUIT team have just published new findings from a recent study. The study was led by Adrian Bussone, Simone Stumpf (City, University of London) and Bakita Kasadha (Terrence Higgins Trust) and evidenced that adults living with HIV view trust, privacy and security online in ways that are strongly linked to their own personal and digital identities.
We would like to thank Design Informatics at Edinburgh University for inviting us to join their webinar series on 29th April 2020. In our talk we described our collaborative and co-creative research practice within the INTUIT programme.
We would like to thank the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA) and its Youth Committee (CYC) for inviting us to spend the day with them. We were asked to use the creative methods previously developed for participant engagement in INTUIT to prompt the CYC members to discuss the self-management of HIV in relation to wellbeing, and how young people self-report on this to healthcare professionals (HCPs).
In collaboration with the North East organisation Blue Sky Trust, researchers based at Northumbria University have signed up to become HIV Champions.
This summer, researchers based at Northumbria University and Terrence Higgins Trust have conducted a series of creative workshops that aimed to discuss self-care practices for living well with HIV and managing the condition.
This summer, researchers based at City, University of London have conducted interviews to understand how adults, living with HIV, share health information online.
This Spring, researchers from the five universities and representatives from our partnering organisations gathered together for the first INTUIT Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) meeting, which took place at City, University of London.
Having just joined the INTUIT project, I felt the need to reflect on a couple of events that shaped some of my thinking so far. Firstly, we have been working for the past month towards the launch of the project and key to this was the design of a logo and visual identity for INTUIT.
“We warmly welcome the launch of the INTUIT project which will make an important contribution to our knowledge of how to make best use of digital technologies whilst protecting the privacy of those living with HIV.” Deborah Gold, Chief Executive, NAT.
"The rapid digital technological changes that have already happened are already having profound effects on the way people live, individually and collectively." Dr John Baird, Digital Economy Theme Lead, EPSRC.
