Each year, National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (#NWGHAAD) takes place on March 10. This year for #NWGHAAD, The Well Project presented a powerful new episode of Leadership Exchange LIVE. Moderated by Ciarra “Ci Ci” Covin, don’t miss this empowering and informative discussion between The Well Project’s community advisory board member Kim Canady (Pleasure Activist) and sexologist Ashley Cobb (The Black Dr. Ruth) as they explore the unique aspects of women’s sexual experiences and discuss the importance of prioritizing pleasure and sexual satisfaction for all women living with and vulnerable to HIV. They also delve into the use of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) as both a preventive tool for HIV and a means to increase women’s sexual agency.

Check out this exceptional conversation from experts in the community addressing the holistic needs of women, with an emphasis on Black women’s health and wellness.
