HIV/AIDS Forum 2013
Dr. Julio Montaner, Director of the British Columbia Centre for Excellence (BC-CfE) in HIV/AIDS at St. Paul’s, was the featured speaker at this year’s St. Paul’s Health Forum on HIV/AIDS. More than 100 members of the public attended the event, held on February 14, to hear Dr. Montaner discuss the latest progress in the battle to stop the disease.
“To curb HIV and reach the promise of an AIDS-free generation, we must ramp up and fully roll out treatment as prevention in Canada and around the world,” Dr. Montaner said. “You can deliver on an AIDS-free generation. All you need to do is implement what we already know.”
