BIO: Dr. Bungay is an Associate Professor at the School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia and holds a Canada Research Chair in Gender, Equity and Community Engagement. As the Director of the Capacity Research Unit, her work focuses on addressing inequities that negatively affect people’s health and well-being including the devastating effects of stigma, discrimination and violence. She is interested in how
research partnerships can positively impact communities that are regularly excluded in health and social policy and programming that affect their lives and how community-based interventions support real world evidence. Her current research and partnerships are tackling such issues as research ethics in practice, equity oriented care, gender–based violence, and evidence informed recommendations to promote and protect the
health, safety and human rights of people engaged in the sex industry.
