IUSTI Canada, the newest member of the IUSTI family, was formally recognized by the World IUSTI and IUSTI North America in 2015.
IUSTI Canada provides an opportunity for individuals working in the fields of STI’s and HIV to discuss trends and topics including research, treatment, patient engagement and management, behavioural interventions for prevention, and program science.
IUSTI Canada came to life through the perseverance and hard work of Jo-Anne Dillon (University of Saskatchewan) and Marc Steben (Medical advisor, STI unit, Institut national de santé publique du Québec), with the support of Greg Penney (Director, National Programs, Canadian Public Health Association). The Canadian Public Health Association serves as host and secretariat for IUSTI Canada.
We thank the World IUSTI and IUSTI North America for their support and look forward to engaging colleagues in Canada and around the world!
