Jen Johnson is the Program Coordinator of ARCSHS’ Blood-Borne Virus (BBV) Sector Development Program.

The BBV Sector Development Program works to support and strengthen the Victorian BBV workforce to meet the challenges of elimination targets, new prevention technologies, and scaling up testing and treatment.

Jen has been interviewing leaders from peer and community organisations across the sector since the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown. We invited her to share her reflections about how the community sector has been engaging, adapting, and influencing its way through COVID-19.
