Reciprocity and citizenship in the adoption of a new HIV prevention technology

bridget haire

SIN-PREP is a qualitative study exploring the culture of early PrEP adoption in Australia, and considering changing concepts of ‘safe sex’. This seminar will discuss emerging themes of responsibility, citizenship and reciprocity invoked by participants not only in relation to their sexual practice, but also in acting as mentors or educators of friends and sexual partners, and as active participants in research. Meaningful aspects of reciprocity which are being enacted in the researcher/participant relationship will also be explored.

Dr Bridget Haire is a research fellow at The Kirby Institute at UNSW Sydney. She is also the President of the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO); the federation for the community-based response to HIV in Australia. She conducts research in the areas of research ethics, public health and human rights, and lectures in public health ethics, global health, medical ethics, bioethics, and medical humanities at the Universities of NSW and Sydney.
