Kirby Institute Seminar Series presents

Mr Aaron Cogle  

Mr Aaron Cogle
Executive Director, National Association of People with HIV Australia (NAPWHA)

Aaron Cogle is the Executive Director of the National Association of People with HIV Australia. Before that, he worked for the NHS in HIV prevention and sexual health. He has qualifications in Law and Policy.



People with HIV have a long history of involvement in HIV-related research. However, their specific role in HIV prevention has yet to be fully understood. Aaron will analyse what constitutes the ‘meaningful involvement’ of people with HIV, how we move beyond mere involvement to something more substantial, and what we can gain by changing the narrative around HIV prevention research. Aaron will also talk about how NAPWHA utilises research about positive people and where the gaps are in our current understanding of the Australian HIV-positive population.
