Therapeutic Guidelines - Antiretroviral Treatment (ARV) of adult HIV infection

These updated guidelines incorporate new drugs and monitoring strategies while reflecting the revised understanding of HIV as a chronic inflammatory disease, which has been shown to lead to organ dysfunction, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and a variety of cancers. Finally, the new guidelines incorporate, for the first time, the notion of an added preventive effect of HAART.

Changing the Frame: A New Approach to Drug Policy in Canada

In 2011, a number of Canada’s leading experts in drug policy formed the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition (CDPC) to serve as an informed and independent national voice on drug policy issues and to bring together groups interested in reform. This document is intended to help set the stage for a principled, evidence-driven, pragmatic and humane reform of Canada’s drug laws and policies. It is also intended to help guide a national consultation about reform of Canada’s laws and policies on currently illegal drugs.
