NAPWHA Learning Podcast

Our goal is to share something interesting you can watch in the time it takes to consume a hot beverage. Many episodes are short segments from longer webinars. They feature community members talking about their lives, as well as subject matter experts discussing issues relevant to the HIV workforce in Australia. You are welcome to share comments about the podcast on the YouTube page for each episode.

About the host

Daniel has been working in the community-based response to HIV since 2004 and in HIV social research since 2014. They have a particular passion for trauma-informed practice, safe storytelling and health equity.
