HIV and COVID-19: Public health, clinical and frontline community perspectives

Event Date: 
April 2 2020, 1:00 pm EDT

The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is a global health emergency. In Canada, the HIV sector is concerned with how COVID-19 will affect people living with HIV and affected communities. We are also concerned about how to effectively sustain a response to HIV during a period of profound disruption to society, the economy and the health system.

This interactive webinar will provide a forum for clinical, community and research leaders from across the country to discuss these ideas and concerns. We will hear from a panel of HIV experts on clinical, public health and community considerations for those working with key populations affected by HIV. 

Moderator: Andrew Brett, Director of Communications, CATIE  

Speakers: 

  • Dr. Isaac Bogoch, Clinician Researcher, University Health Network
  • Dr. Alexandra King, Cameco Chair in Indigenous Health, University of Saskatchewan 
  • John McCullagh, Co-Chair, Ontario AIDS Network and Vice-Chair, CATIE 
  • Len Tooley, Evaluation and Advancement Director, Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC)
