HIV Today

When Princess Diana visited Toronto’s Casey House in 1991, it marked a turning point for how HIV was viewed around the world. Casey House, a specialty hospital in Toronto providing care for those living with, and at risk of, HIV garnered international attention. Canadians have come a long way in our understanding of both the medical and social aspects of HIV, and there is still work to be done. Join Yasser Ismail, Director of Data Strategy and Knowledge at Casey House, Dr. Gord Arbess Clinical Director, HIV Program at the St. Michael’s Hospital Family Health Team and on staff at Casey House, and Doris Peltier, a leader in HIV and Indigenous Health research and advocacy to see how HIV care and attitudes in Canada have evolved.

Support for The Meighen Forum is generously provided by Kelly & Michael Meighen and the T.R. Meighen Family Foundation.
