Webinar: STI and Blood-borne Infections: Testing and Cases 2017-2021 in BC

Date: Thursday June 16, 2022
Time: 10-11 AM Pacific time

Presenter: Theodora B. Consolacion, Ph.D., Epidemiologist, Clinical Prevention Services, BCCDC
Moderator: J. Evin Jones


The next webinar in our PAN Presents series focuses on an epidemiological snap-shot of STI and blood-borne Infections (STBBI) across 5 years. Testing for STBBIs fell in 2020 coinciding with the declaration of the COVID 19 pandemic. Similarly, drops in test positivity and cases were found for many STBBIs with the exception of syphilis. For HIV, an increase in diagnoses in later stages of infections was found for 2020 compared to previous years.  Join us to find out all the details and ask your questions. Register.
