2010 Conference



The OHTN 13th Annual Research Conference showcased new Canadian HIV research findings in basic and clinical science, epidemiology, socio-behavioural, prevention, intervention and community-based research. The 2010 conference was the second in an innovative three-year plan to support the development and dissemination of effective interdisciplinary interventions in HIV prevention, treatment and support in Ontario and Canada.

The 2010 conference, Research at the Frontlines: Targeting the Complexities of HIV:

  • focused on methodologies and findings in intervention research in Ontario, Canada and other countries with a comparable HIV epidemic
  • highlighted interventions designed to target HIV as well as other factors (e.g., co-morbidities, social determinants of health) that intersect with HIV to increase vulnerability, decrease health-related quality of life, and complicate care and treatment
  • encouraged open, evidence-based discussion of controversial issues in HIV prevention, treatment and support – including physiological, clinical, socio-economic, cultural and psychosocial and neurocognitive factors
