Preparing the Canadian Public Health Community for New HIV Prevention Technologies: Understanding the Knowledge, Information Needs and Potential Role of Public Health Workers in Canada and Learning from the Experiences in Southeast Europe

This document examines public health’s knowledge, information needs, roles, opportunities, challenges and capacity to introduce and deliver NPTs in Canada. The report presents the findings of various data collection methods including consultations, a literature search/review, key informant interviews and a nationwide online survey of public health stakeholders.
