Ms. Mbulaheni brings 10 years of research experience related to Black/African women and social/structural contexts of HIV risk and prevention spanning Canada and South Africa. Her doctoral research will focus on critically examining structural forms of racism shaping HIV services accessed by Black women in the Greater Toronto Area. This inquiry will further investigate how women experience these services and the subsequent impacts on their decision-making related to HIV prevention and treatment. Ms. Mbulaheni is also a burgeoning scholar of critical theories of race and racism including critical race theory. She is particularly interested in the ways genealogies of medical discourse concerning Black women are taken up in present-day public health responses.
