Biography

Olivier Ferlatte est professeur adjoint au département de médecine sociale et préventive à l’École de santé publique de l’Université de Montréal et chercheur régulier au Centre de Recherche en Santé Publique (CreSP). Il est titulaire d’un baccalauréat en sexologie de l’Université du Québec à Montréal et d’une maitrise et d’un doctorat en santé publique de l’Université Simon Fraser en Colombie-Britannique. Ses travaux de recherche sont axés sur la relation entre la stigmatisation, la consommation de substance et la santé mentale chez les communautés 2S/LGBTQIA+. Il est un expert reconnu sur les syndémies et sur l’approche intersectionnelle, et les conclusions de ses travaux de recherche ont influencé des politiques ainsi que le développement de programmes visant à améliorer la santé des personnes 2S/LGBTQIA+. Ses travaux scientifiques sont basés sur plusieurs méthodologies (qualitative, quantitative, méthode artistique, approches mixtes) et sont motivés par un intérêt particulier pour l’engagement communautaire et la participation des personnes touchés par les inégalités en santé en tant que partenaire de recherche. Mr. Ferlatte est le directeur Qollab, un laboratoire de recherche communautaire et collaboratif sur la santé mentale des personnes 2S/LGBTQIA+.
