OHTN Researcher Profiles
The OHTN is committed to funding research that makes a difference. In November 2011 we adopted a new research policy Funding Research with Real-Life Impact, designed to help us achieve our mission to improve the health and well-being of people living with and at risk of HIV in Ontario. OHTN researchers are answering questions and solving problems that are highly relevant to one or more of the populations in Ontario most affected by HIV.
