Sexual Health and Sustainable Development Goals: Leaving no one behind in the global health agenda

Oct 13, 2021

Join us for this Global Health Lunch & Learn with Dr. Carmen Logie, PWIAS International Visiting Research Scholar, at the School of Population and Public Health (SPPH), co-hosted with the Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity (CGSHE). This event will be presented in-person at SPPH and online via Zoom. 

Sexual rights and sexual pleasure are missing from the Sustainable Development Goals’ focus on sexual and reproductive health. Why does this matter, and who does it matter for? Dr. Logie explores how these missing discourses can perpetuate sexual health inequities toward sexually and gender diverse persons, and sex workers, in diverse global contexts. She will also examine frameworks and innovative methods for addressing these gaps in global sexual health research.

Dr. Carmen Logie is the Canada Research Chair in Global Health Equity and Social Justice at the University of Toronto. She is a visiting professor at the CGSHE hosted by PWIAS faculty associate Dr. Kate Shannon. Dr. Logie’s research is aimed at understanding and addressing intersectional stigma and its sexual and reproductive health impacts, with a focus on HIV. She is currently conducting research with Indigenous and Northern adolescents in Northern Canada; sexual rights movements (HIV-related, LGBTQ, sex worker, abortion rights) in Brazil; and urban refugee and displaced adolescents in Uganda.
