Event Details

Vancouver’s Dr. Peter Centre provides care and support to people living with HIV and coping with social disparities and concurrent health issues including: mental health conditions, addiction, hepatitis C, physical disabilities, homelessness, and trauma. Through a range of services, including nurse-supervised injection services, the Centre engages individuals in their health care with the goals of improved adherence to HIV treatment, and improved overall health.

 The session will provide an evidence-based case study to researchers, clinicians, and policymakers pursuing treatment as prevention strategies, and seeking models for engaging people who face multiple challenges in their HIV treatment. Evidence includes cascade of care data, data from a research study on the Dr. Peter Centre, research data on reductions of leaving hospital against medical advice, and how the Centre’s harm reduction approach decreases drug-related risks and improves health outcomes, including ART adherence and survival for HIV+ drug-using populations.
