HIV In My Day: Oral History Project Archive Launched

HIV In My Day is a collection of oral history interviews with long-term HIV survivors and their caregivers conducted between 2017 and 2020 in British Columbia by a team of community-based researchers and peers. These interviews focus on participants’ experiences of the early years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Within communities most impacted by the epidemic in Canada, HIV/AIDS is both a historical experience of loss and community resilience, and an ongoing public health concern. Oral history offers a way of addressing persistent health challenges, not just by preserving the past, but by providing insight into how current prevention and treatment interventions can be reinvigorated.

This collection includes a combination of video, audio, and transcripts of the different interviews.
