CATIE's history

Originally founded in 1990 to share information among people living with HIV about new and emerging treatments, CATIE’s mandate has expanded to providing both treatment and prevention information on HIV and hepatitis C to frontline service providers across Canada. Our full legal name is the Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange, but today we operate under the name CATIE.
