OHTN takes a strategic, solution-focused, and purpose-driven approach to funding research and researchers. In keeping with our values, OHTN launched the Impact Focused  Research Program in 2012. Through this program, OHTN funds research that addresses needs identified by those Ontarians most affected by HIV (priority populations) and that discovers and evaluates means to improve the HIV prevention, engagement and care cascade and the integration of health services. It prioritizes projects with the potential for short-term impact (3-5 years).
