Rapid Response Service
The OHTN Rapid Response Service provides access to research evidence in response to questions from community-based HIV/AIDS organizations in Ontario to help support evidence-informed programs, service delivery and advocacy. We conduct searches of the scientific literature and contact experts in the appropriate fields to locate key information resources. Searches typically focus on identifying:
- Systematic reviews (i.e., a synthesis of the global pool of research evidence about a specific topic or question)
- Primary research evidence (i.e., individual research studies) that relates to the requested topic
From the research evidence that we identify, we develop a brief synthesis of the key findings about the requested topic.
If you are a community-based HIV/AIDS organization in Ontario and would like to request a Rapid Response on an HIV-related topic, see our Rapid Response Guidelines. Please note that the minimum timeline for the OHTN to complete a request is one-month.
