Reproductive Justice for people living with HIV: Lessons learned from research in Africa.
Born and raised in South Africa, Dr. Deborah Mindry is a Research Anthropologist with the UCGHI* Center for Women’s Health Gender and Empowerment at UCLA.
Deborah Mindry’s (she/her/hers) research interests include gender politics, NGOS and development, Sexual Reproductive Health, and HIV/AIDS. She has conducted qualitative ethnographic research in South Africa since the early 1990s. Her research examines HIV, reproductive health, and gender dynamics in South Africa (Durban), Malawi (Lilongwe and Nkhoma), Uganda (Kampala) and USA (Los Angeles). She is currently working on a book manuscript, “I am HIV: Ordinary people daring to live and make change in South Africa” which challenges conceptions of Africans as victims of HIV, arguing instead that it is people on the ground who are figuring out how to live and thrive with an infectious disease.
She is an extraordinary international spokesperson for women. She has great compassion and the courage of her convictions.
NOTE: UCGHI is the UC Global Health Institute, a UC-wide initiative that stimulates, nurtures, and promotes global health research, education, and collaboration to advance the University’s global health agenda.
