COVID-19, le VIH, le VHC et la réduction des méfaits : Prévention, épidémiologie et réponse communautaire

CATIE - Canada's source for HIV and hepatitis C information

La pandémie du nouveau coronavirus (COVID-19) suscite une crise sans précédent au niveau social, économique et dans le milieu de la santé. Alors que tout se réorganise, les personnes qui vivent avec le VIH et/ou l’hépatite C et les personnes qui consomment des drogues font face à des préoccupations et des enjeux particuliers. Le secteur communautaire travaille fort pour continuer à offrir des services et à répondre aux besoins dans un contexte de confinement et de bouleversement social.

Ce webinaire offrira un espace de discussion en français sur l’impact et la réponse à la crise de la COVID-19 par rapport au VIH, à l’hépatite C et à la réduction des méfaits. Représentant des expertises variées, les panélistes se pencheront sur les aspects épidémiologiques, cliniques et préventifs, ainsi que sur la réorganisation des secteurs communautaires et de la santé en lien avec la crise de la COVID-19. Ils offriront des idées et des stratégies pratiques à l’intention des personnes et des fournisseurs de services.

Le format du webinaire se veut interactif et favorisera un échange en temps réel avec les membres de l’auditoire.

Adapting to COVID-19: Delivering community programs remotely

CATIE - Canada's source for HIV and hepatitis C information

During the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, many organizations have rapidly adapted their program delivery to ensure the continuity of support services for their clients. Although measures such as physical distancing are in place, HIV and hepatitis C programs are still needed – including counselling, treatment support, education and social programming. One way to adapt to the current situation is to deliver programs remotely, which can include the use of virtual platforms or the telephone.

This interactive webinar provided a forum for service providers from across Canada to share how they have adapted to the current climate by providing remote services to their clients. Speakers shared how programs were adapted and implemented, as well as challenges and solutions related to virtual and remote programming.
