Carmen Logie PhDCarmen Logie, PhD is an Assistant Professor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto and an Adjunct Scientist at Women’s College Research Institute, Women’s College Hospital. She is an Early Researcher Award Recipient with the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation (2016-2021) and a former Grand Challenges Canada Rising Star in Global Health. Her program of research, which is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, addresses social and structural drivers of HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STI), including intersectional stigma. Her research enhances understanding of HIV/STI vulnerability among diverse marginalized populations, and informs the development, implementation and evaluation of multi-level HIV and STI prevention interventions. Dr. Logie has led as principal investigator multi-disciplinary teams focused on HIV/STI research with: internally displaced women in post-earthquake Haiti; sexually and gender diverse youth in Jamaica and Canada; Indigenous youth in Northern Canada; and African and Caribbean (AC) young women in Ontario, Canada. She is a member of the World Health Organization’s Guideline Development for Brief Sexuality Counseling, and was invited to the 2016 White House Meetings on HIV Stigma: Research for a Robust Response, and stigma and discrimination expert consultations in 2016 with the National Institute of Health and U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief  Stigma and Discrimination Task force, to identify next steps in the global research agenda to measure, monitor and address HIV stigma. Dr. Logie has over 60 peer-reviewed publications that have significantly contributed to understanding: associations between stigma and health outcomes among both persons living with HIV and HIV-negative persons; and the complexity of stigma based on intersecting identities (e.g. gender, race, sexuality, HIV serostatus, drug use).
