WAVE Working Committees

 

To actively promote the welfare of HIV-positive women in Europe, we work in eight thematic committees that each WAVE member can join, according to his/her areas of interest.

Each committee defines its own structure, its way of acting, its way of communicating, chooses one yearly activity and presents to the Scientific Committee a yearly report on the activity implementation.

If you want to join WAVE or you are a WAVE member and not yet in a Working Committee please contact WaveSecretariat@eacsociety.org. 

 The main activities of the working committees are:

 

  • Developing WAVE-led research and applying for individual project grants
  • Preparing endorsement letters for external activities or other form of promotion for research which are in line with the WAVE mission and philosophy
  • Organising medical experience exchange
  • Organising  ad hoc expert advisory groups, and if necessary advocate for the cause within the WAVE mission
  • Thematic workshops

 

Committees: 

-> PSYCHOSOCIAL CARE, MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING

-> SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

-> BREASTFEEDING AND PREGNANCY
