The Ontario HIV Surveillance and Epidemiology Initiative (OHESI) is pleased to announce the release of a new report titled “HIV care cascade in Ontario: Linkage to care, in care, on antiretroviral treatment, and virally suppressed“.
This is a technical report intended to support public health professionals, clinicians, health system planners, policy makers and the leadership of AIDS service organizations, as well as other engaged stakeholders. The report has been compiled using a cohort of people diagnosed with HIV in Ontario, created using linked HIV diagnostic and viral load tests from public health laboratory systems. The results demonstrate improved engagement in Ontario’s HIV cascade between 2000 and 2015.
OHESI is a collaboration involving the AIDS Bureau of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Public Health Ontario, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the Ontario HIV Treatment Network Applied Epidemiology Unit. The objectives of OHESI are to analyze, monitor and disseminate knowledge products on the epidemiology of HIV in Ontario.
