Programming Connection

Program Models 

Each of the programs profiled in the Programming Connection is a model of frontline practice: a program that advances HIV and hepatitis C prevention, testing, treatment, care or support efforts in Canadian communities. Descriptions of Canadian programs included in the Programming Connection are developed in collaboration with service providers:

  • Case studies are in-depth descriptions of programs
  • Program elements provide a snapshot of one element of a program, or an overview of an adaptation of an existing program
  • Bright Ideas! are brief descriptions of programs
