The AIDS Committee of Toronto’s (ACT) Research Day is an annual event for HIV/AIDS service providers, researchers, people living with HIV, policy-makers, and other community stakeholders to discuss current research and implications for programs and policy, and to develop community-based research capacity, knowledge and collaborative research opportunities for front-line staff and researchers.
The theme this year is Research for a Good Life! This half-day event features presentations and discussions that will enhance our understanding of HIV research in relation to stigma, mental health and HIV across the life span. In addition, small groups will discuss how the featured research may affect program and policy development, and identify research gaps.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Considerations for supervised consumption facilities in Toronto
- Queer women, HIV and violence
- Living long-term with HIV: Experiences, needs and recommendations
- HIV and the brain: Building screening and intervention to improve care and support
- How criminalization is affecting the lives of people living with HIV
This free event will be held on Thursday, May 30, beginning with a networking lunch at 12:00 noon. The venue is The 519 Church Street Community Centre in Toronto.
