Integration of HIV and Hepatitis C Care in Overdose Prevention Sites: What are the Gaps?

Funding body: CIHR

Background: The goal of this study is to answer the overarching question: How can we better integrate HIV and HCV care in overdose prevention sites? Using the OPS at AIDS Vancouver Island (AVI) as a case, we explore the strengths and gaps in integration of HIV and HCV care from the perspectives of OPS providers and clients, identify potential interventions that could be implemented in the OPS context, and develop a comprehensive practical toolkit for OPS providers. 

Progress to date: Data collection to launch soon.
