Access to dental care is often limited for many people living with HIV in Canada due to financial barriers and fear of discrimination and stigma. Check out our Dental Care 101 brochure for all you need to know about your dental health rights in Canada.

Procedural and institutional barriers have resulted in two standards of care – one for people living with mono-infection, and a much worse standard for people living with HIV/HCV co-infection. This position paper explains why these two standards of care have emerged and makes pragmatic recommendations to accelerate clinical trials and Common Drug Review decision-making to allow co-infected people to benefit from the latest technologies available.

The Impact Of Polypharmacy On Older Adults Living With HIV

Polypharmacy refers to the concurrent use of 5 or more medications. Research has shown an association between this level of medication intake and negative health events while studies have shown that over half of all adults living with HIV (age 50+) take five or more prescriptions per day. This guide looks at the impact of polypharmacy on the lives of older adults living with HIV.

This paper identifies practices that community-based organizations (CBOs), community health centres (CHCs), clinics and other health and social services are engaging to do HIV and hepatitis C work concurrently. The goal of No More Silos is to assist organizations considering undertaking an integrated approach to HIV and hepatitis C for the first time as they identify ways in which an integrated approach may be relevant to them.
