The Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the health and lives of people living with and at risk of HIV by using data and evidence to drive change. We fund HIV research and provide education, capacity building, evaluation services, data collection and monitoring for HIV services in Ontario.

The OHTN is a collaborative network of:

  • people living with HIV
  • community-based agencies
  • health care providers
  • government policy makers
  • educators
  • researchers.

We are an active, committed partner in Ontario’s HIV/AIDS strategy with a vision of communities thriving now and beyond HIV. We support high quality research and share the best available evidence to help end the HIV epidemic in Ontario.

We plan to unveil our new strategic plan later in 2017-18. Previous strategic plans are available here.

Our Governance

The OHTN is governed by a Board of Directors elected from the following stakeholder groups:

  • people living with HIV
  • Ontario primary care physicians
  • Ontario HIV outpatient clinic directors and coordinators
  • HIV researchers.

Representatives of Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care participate on the board as non-voting members.

The OHTN operates on the traditional lands of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, the Petun, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, and we acknowledge the Métis and Inuit relatives as well. This meeting place has been the home to many Indigenous people for thousands of years and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
