The Canadian Symposium on Hepatitis C Virus, organised by CanHepC, has been taking place each year since 2012. This one day meeting brings together Canadian and international scientists, clinicians, young researchers, trainees, students and communities affected by Hepatitis C with one goal: to respond effectively to current and future challenges in the management of Hepatitis C.
It’s a unique opportunity to exchange research findings, promote collaborations, foster knowledge translation and create synergy among Canadian researchers, healthcare practitioners and community-based groups working in the field of Hepatitis C.
ICAD Lunch and Learn Series: Going Glocal – Global Connections with Local Realities
How are social media and ICT being used to promote sexual health and to engage individuals and communities in the response to HIV?
ICAD invites you to join us for a one-hour webinar featuring a presentation of key lessons learned from the development of ICAD’s Digital Liaisons website and an interactive discussion with representatives of two of our featured case studies. Learn from the experiences of others by hearing how community-based organizations are using social media and ICT in interesting and innovative ways.
Join us for a conversation with:
Robin Montgomery, ICAD (“ICAD Goes Virtual”)

The annual CAHR Conference is the premier gathering in Canada for those working in all disciplines of HIV/AIDS research, as well as policy makers, persons living with HIV and other individuals committed to ending the pandemic.
HR17, the 25th Harm Reduction International (HRI) Conference, will be 2017’s largest international harm reduction event. It will bring together those at the heart of the harm reduction response – from practitioners and peers to advocates and researchers – for four packed days of presentations, workshops, panel discussions, films, exhibitions, networking events and more.
First held in Liverpool 27 years ago, HRI conferences have since been staged in major cities across the globe. This year, we’re returning to North America for the first time since our Vancouver conference in 2006. HR17 will be hosted on 14th-17th May 2017 in Montréal, Canada, in partnership with the Association des Intervenants en Dépendance du Québec (AIDQ).
As Canada begins to adopt a more forward-looking approach to drugs, in the rest of the region – and much of the planet – progress is still painfully slow. In response, HR17 will help build a global harm reduction movement that learns, shares and cooperates to build a world where people benefit from good drug policies, rooted in dignity, health and human rights.

RESULTS Canada is hosting a round table discussion at the University of British Columbia on September 29, 2017. If you or those in your network are involved in the Canadian global health R&D sector please consider attending and/or share this across your own network.
We need to hear directly from you on the opportunities, gaps and best practices in your experience concerning global health R&D, particularly for diseases of poverty. According to a recent funding report that maps out Canada’s spending into neglected R&D for diseases of poverty, funding is low, inconsistent, and lacks diversity. Launching from this research, we would like to investigate in greater detail the challenges and opportunities facing the global health R&D community in Canada. We will use this to help inform a set of policy recommendations to move Canada’s R&D funding for global health and diseases of poverty forward. Now is a key time to voice the needs of the research community if we want to see the full potential of the Canadian global health community realized.
RESULTS Canada is a global advocacy organization that works to create the political will to end poverty through focused advocacy in global nutrition, child health, education and tuberculosis. We work with a variety of stakeholders to advance these causes, including elected officials, NGOs, multilateral organizations, federal officials, and members of the Canadian public.
The Global Ministerial Conference aims to accelerate country implementation of the WHO End TB Strategy in order to reach the End TB targets set by the World Health Assembly and the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Ministerial Conference will inform the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on TB in 2018.
World AIDS Day, December 1, which also launches the start of Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week in Canada, is a time for reflection: on what we have achieved with regard to the national and global response to HIV, and what we still must achieve.
World AIDS Day is a day dedicated to commemorate those who have passed on and to raise awareness about AIDS and the global spread of the HIV virus.
The first World AIDS Day was held in 1988 after health ministers from around the world met in London, England and agreed to such a day as a way of highlighting the enormity of the AIDS pandemic and nations’ responsibility to ensure universal treatment, care and support for people living with HIV and AIDS.
