Biography

Angela Kaida is an epidemiologist based in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Global Perspectives in HIV and Sexual and Reproductive Health. She has been learning from and working with women living with HIV for the past 10 years. Angela’s research focuses on the sexual and reproductive health priorities of women living with HIV, including sexuality, safer conception, contraceptive access, reproductive decision-making, healthy pregnancy, and postpartum well-being. Her work investigates the social and structural factors that limit women’s realization of fulfilling sexual and reproductive lives, including laws that criminalize HIV non-disclosure. Angela’s research program adopts a community-informed, rights-driven, and evidenced-based approach to sexual and reproductive health by, with, and for women affected by HIV. She emigrated to Canada from Kenya as a child and today, her research program involves thousands of women living with or affected by HIV in East Africa, South Africa, and Canada.
