Jason joined the Burnet after eight years of working in HIV community-based prevention and support in both Toronto and Melbourne.
“I’ve been here nearly three years, and I’ve been able to develop skills I didn’t have when I started, and to identify areas of interest and work that I hadn’t dabbled in before.
“I like that the days are very different. I can go from working on a very heavy data load to engaging with the community – clinicians, prevention workers, sexual health clinics.
“That’s probably why I came to Burnet. It was clear to me that Burnet had this unique approach where the community is still the focus of their work.”

With a background in overseas development work, Julie has lived and worked in Nepal and Bangladesh.
“I joined Burnet because they’re a progressive organisation that believes in health interventions based on research based evidence, and they do these in partnership with communities
“After I started working here, I found there is also a strong focus on local ownership and building country level capacity through all our work.
“I enjoy the brilliant and generous people I have the opportunity to work with every day."
