Dr. Goldenberg is a social epidemiologist and mixed-methods researcher focused on health equity, social justice, and migrant and women’s health. Her research aims to understand and develop strategies to address HIV, substance use, and sexual and reproductive health inequities among underserved communities, with a focus on migration, gender, and race-based inequities. Dr. Goldenberg has been invited to contribute to global and national policy initiatives and clinical guidelines pertaining to HIV and sexual health care for marginalized communities, including the United Nations Joint Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 90-90-90 HIV Targets for Key Populations, and the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) Guidelines on Optimizing HIV Care (Key Populations).
Dr. Goldenberg is the Principal Investigator of an a ongoing NIDA-funded community-based cohort study examining the impacts of structural and system-level interventions on HIV/STI, overdose, and related health and social inequities among sex workers in Vancouver, Canada, known as An Evaluation of Sex Worker’s Health Access (AESHA). She is also Principal Investigator of the IRIS Project, which is a mixed-methods evaluation of migrant women’s access to sexual and reproductive health care and COVID-19 care in BC, using administrative population-based data and qualitative interviews.
