The primary aim of this three-part training is to build capacity for diagnosing and dismantling obstetric racism across power relations, differentials, and dynamics in health systems serving and supporting Black women, girls, and gender expansive people living with HIV. The first part of the training will introduce the history, theories, and concepts of anti-Black gendered racism, misogynoir, and obstetric racism. The second and third parts will dig deeper into how obstetric racism intersects with misogynoir and HIV stigma during service provision, training, and evaluation in healthcare settings.

At the end of the proposed training, the participants will be able to:

  • Define and describe anti-Black racism, misogynoir, obstetric racism, and HIV-related stigma
  • Explain how anti-Black racism, misogynoir, and HIV-related stigma shape pregnancy-related health care expectations and experiences of Black women and people living with HIV
  • Summarize the impact of obstetric racism on patient-centered access to health care
  • Describe strategies to diagnose and disrupt obstetric racism and HIV-related stigma at the health systems level to improve the impact of care on patient and community experiences

Registration to each webinar is highly encouraged as each event will cover different topics and build off one another.
