Understanding humans

Understanding humans

Jaison B Kolenchery, a Masters in Molecular Genetics from Leicester University, UK and currently completing his PhD at Exeter University, UK would be presenting a seminar on the topic ‘Understanding Humans’.
As humans, we pride ourselves in our perceived intellectual superiority over other living beings that inhabit the earth. While we have achieved so much regarding our scientific understanding of the natural world and technology, we have so much more to accomplish in the areas of discrimination and unhealthy behaviours. This presentation attempts to briefly introduce some peculiar cognitive disorders, biases and logical fallacies in the hope to gain a better understanding of our behaviours and cognitive processes. Furthermore, this may also help in strategising and moulding our circumstances to reduce the incidence of irrational behaviours.Institute of Public Health Bengaluru is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Safer conception among HIV affected people

Safer conception among HIV affected people

Dear All,

Dr. Renee Heffron, member of the faculty of Global Health and Epidemiology within the International Clinical Research Center at the University of Washington is visiting IPH on the 6th of February (Wednesday). Her research, teaching, and mentoring focuses on advancing the field of HIV prevention and the intersection with reproductive health. She would be delivering a talk on the topic ‘ HIV prevention among people affected by HIV when they desire pregnancy: safer conception’. 
For HIV serodiscordant couples (in which one partner is living with HIV and one partner is not), having condom less sex to become pregnant can put the HIV-negative member at risk for acquiring their partner’s HIV infection. Safer conception strategies are able to minimize this risk, especially when they are used in combination. In this talk, Dr. Heffron will describe the situation faced by HIV serodiscordant couples and individuals affected by HIV when they desire pregnancy, describe interventions that can minimize sexual HIV transmission risk when pregnancy is desired, and present results from a recent pilot program in Kenya.
You are invited to attend the talk in person or via zoom

Experience of Health Inequities among tribal communities in Karnataka

Experience of Health Inequities among tribal communities in Karnataka

Dr. Nityasri S N will be presenting  a seminar on the topic ‘Experience of health inequities among forest- dwelling tribal communities in Karnataka’.
The tribal communities in India are categorised as Scheduled Tribes. Forest-dwelling tribal communities in most parts of India prefer to be known as Adivasis. There have been descriptive studies about the nature and extent of health inequities among Adivasi communities, but there is a lack of understanding of the pathways and processes which lead to the inequities. Dr. Nityasri proposes tto study (as part of her PhD), the experiences of inequities among Adivasis. Using case studies, she proposes to develop a framework mapping the pathways of inequities among Adivasis in Karnataka.
