Sexual health and the Black community, 25 November | Online Event | Sexual health and the Black community
Black communities experience a range of disparities in the area of sexual health. This online talk will explore them and provide solutions

About this Event

Black communities experience a range of disparities when it comes to sexual health. Some of these include: increased rates of sexually transmitted infection (STI) and human immunodefiency viruses (HIV)transmission, increased rates of domestic violence, stigma surrounding sexuality alongside barriers to accessing sexual and reproductive health care that are often rooted in discrimination. This cannot be adequately understood without looking at the way African/Caribbean communities engage, access and receive health care.

This online seminar aims to shine a light on some of these issues whilst illustrating new ways of working to engage ,support and mobilise Black communities to access improved reproductive and sexual health care

About the Speaker

Rianna Raymond-Williams is a Sexual Health Advisor, Journalist (Voice/Black Ballad) Researcher and Social Entrepreneur from East London.

She works as a sexual health advisor to the NHS and is currently a Master’s student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine studying for her MSc in Reproductive and Sexual Health Research. For her master’s thesis she devised, a qualitative systematic literature review titled ‘Perspectives on Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC) uptake among young Black Caribbean Women in the UK’, to examine the literature to identify and summarise qualitative research evidence on attitudes and perspectives that influence EHC uptake among Black Caribbean women in the UK.

As a result of findings from the 2012 third British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3) which revealed that Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC) use was most commonly reported among Black Caribbean women in the UK. She intends to pursue her PhD to collect her own date on the lived experience, of Black Caribbean women in the UK in relation to contraceptive use, sexual behaviour and relationships.

In 2015 Williams created Shine ALOUD UK (SAUK) a sexual health awareness social enterprise based in, North London, . They use creative solutions to discuss sexual health and relationships among young people under 25 and adults working with young people under 25. SAUK aim to empower their audience to have healthier conversations about sex and relationships.
