    Melanie Bisnauth is PhD student at the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa in the School of Public Health. She served previously as a Research Coordinator in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto and CIHRRC Coordinator. Melanie is very passionate in providing a platform for marginalized women to voice their experiences about the barriers they face when accessing HIV/AIDS health care services. She has demonstrated strong interest in strategic intervention for community based and patient centered care approaches in the HIV/AIDS field. Melanie has worked with Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa where she monitored and evaluated WHOs guidelines on the use of antiretrovirals for treatment and prevention of HIV and its impact on PMTCT programming and services. Her research has allowed her to develop and execute strategic ways to create sustainable system-level change between healthcare professionals and patients. In addition, Melanie has worked in Australia as a Communications and Corporate Services Officer where she developed funding strategies to invest in healthcare infrastructures which addressed stigma and supported outreach care amongst Indigenous peoples experiencing mental health and substance use issues.
