We aim to place Canadian HIV/AIDS research on par with existing international efforts. This national collaboration conducts policy-relevant studies in HIV therapeutics, population and public health. The CANOC Centre brings together a diverse team to capitalize on the unique and robust CANOC database, maximizing the quality and breadth of the health services and policy research generated.
The CANOC cohort, which consists of eleven clinical cohorts from British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador, provides researchers with the analytic power to conduct large and detailed analyses of HIV treatment outcomes that would not be possible within individual cohorts. In the upcoming years, we will continue to address gaps in our understanding of treatment outcomes and regional trends within Canada, informing best practice guidelines for treatment of HIV, and contributing to the training of exceptional new scholars and community investigators.
