Webinar: Addressing HIV and COVID-19: Gaps and opportunities

Date: December 8, 2021
10-11:30 AM Pacific time

As we move through the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the HIV sector continues to respond to the needs of people living with and affected by HIV in Canada, shifting, resuming and adapting services as needed. A new landscape of HIV services is emerging. What can we learn from our experiences in the COVID-19 pandemic, and which of these lessons can be leveraged to support our goals in addressing HIV?

Join us for a webinar, in partnership with the Ontario HIV Treatment Network, that will bring together community-level, clinical and research experts to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the HIV care cascade, our evolving response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to improve services to reach those most affected by both HIV and COVID-19.
