There will be a post-conference virtual workshop at a date to be determined for community leaders, people with lived experience and other frontline service providers from Canada and other regions who play a role in HCV prevention, testing, treatment and support in their communities and who engaged in the WIPCVH.
In partnership with waniska Indigenous Centre for HIV/HCV/STBBI Research and CATIE, the workshop will be designed with an eye to supporting those involved in recommendation-setting activities, as well as those in Saskatchewan who may go on to deliver peer-based testing programs.
