AIDS expert to head $5-million research efforts on hepatitis C

Health Minister Terry Lake on Thursday announced a $5-million study that will look at how to reduce the spread of hepatitis C among intravenous drug users, sex workers and men who have sex with men. It will concentrate on people who have already taken medication that clears them of the hepatitis C virus, but who could be reinfected if they have blood-to-blood contact with another person. They will be encouraged to prevent that by using condoms, not sharing needles and taking part in support programs through Vancouver Coastal Health, one of the five organizations involved in the program.

OPINION: Our post-PrEP world needs a reality check

"PrEP is indeed a step forward in HIV-prevention, but like anything new and shiny, it’s having systemic teething issues in our community.
