We stand at a pivotal point in our response to HIV and Hepatitis C. Recent research has enhanced our understanding of the science of prevention, transmission, testing, treatment, care and support — science that opens up new, innovative avenues for program development and the integration of service delivery.
In Toronto, on September 18 and 19, 2013, CATIE, Canada’s national HIV and Hepatitis C knowledge broker, will be presenting the bilingual CATIE Forum, a national opportunity to bring together stakeholders from across the country to discuss the implications of recent research for frontline programming and to learn from one other about program innovations based on research findings and already at work in the field. For those who cannot attend in person, many of the key components of the CATIE Forum will be webcast live, as well as recorded for subsequent viewing,
CATIE’s executive director, Laurie Edmiston, sat down with me last week to talk about the theme of the CATIE Forum — New Science, New Directions in HIV and Hepatitis C — and how new scientific developments have opened up opportunities for innovative program development and the integration of services. You can watch our discussion in the video below.
