Cullen Family Lecture Theatre, St. Paul’s Hospital, 1081 Burrard St., Vancouver


Please join us for an exciting event, Celebrating HIV Research and Results: Treatment as Prevention®, hosted by the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE) and the University of British Columbia (UBC) Division of AIDS at St. Paul’s Hospital. This day of expert panel presentations is in celebration of the UBC Centennial.

One of the most significant contributions in public health started at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and the UBC Division of AIDS. During this event, learn how the groundbreaking Treatment as Prevention® (TasP) strategy has saved lives and changed how we treat HIV – in Canada and around the globe.

TasP®, including harm reduction, has resulted in a consistent decline in new HIV cases in BC, which is the only province to implement universal access to treatment upon diagnosis with HIV. Panelists will reflect on how these strategies were transformed from research into policy. The event will also highlight critical next steps and goals to be achieved in order to reach an AIDS-free generation.

Celebrating HIV Research and Results will feature talks and panels from prolific and recognized UBC Division of AIDS researchers. Some of the most influential researchers in the fields of medicine, addiction, HIV/AIDS will be speaking, including Dr. Julio Montaner, Director of the BC-CfE and Head of UBC Division of AIDS, as well as community representatives.

The event is free to the public, students, faculty, staff, alumni, government, and research audiences. Check out the BC-CfE website, blog, Twitter page, or Facebook page for more details on event speakers, breaking news and more.
