    Forum Overview

    The aim of the forum was to facilitate knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) on HIV and aging research, clinical practice and service delivery, among people living with HIV, researchers, clinicians, representatives of community organizations, and policy makers in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States; to establish new research and clinical partnerships in HIV and aging internationally; to foster mentorship and training in HIV and aging research; and to identify new and emerging research priorities in HIV, aging and rehabilitation.

    The Canada-UK HIV and Rehabilitation Research Collaborative (CUHRRC), in partnership with realize (formerly CWHGR) and the Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR) hosted the 3rd International Forum on HIV and Rehabilitation Research: Advancing HIV, Aging and Rehabilitation Research on Thursday May 12th, 2016 in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Delta Winnipeg. The Forum was funded by a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Meeting, Planning and Dissemination Grant.

    The forum brought together 69 stakeholders, including community leaders, clinicians, students and people living with HIV from Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States to exchange research evidence related to HIV, aging and rehabilitation.

    Living Longer and Living Well with HIV – Special Plenary Session

    The Forum was preceded by an invited special session on HIV and rehabilitation at the Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR) Conference on  May 12th, 2016 entitled: ‘Living Longer and Living Well with HIV: Reaching New Heights in Healthy Aging’. The objectives of this hour long session were: 1) to demonstrate the role and evidence for rehabilitation in the context of HIV and aging; 2) to profile evidence on HIV and aging rehabilitation interventions; 3) to introduce models of rehabilitation service delivery; 4) to highlight the strengths of rehabilitation research and practice in Canada, the United Kingdom and Sub-Saharan Africa to support people living with HIV to live well and live longer; and 5) to discuss strategies for enhancing access to rehabilitation for people aging with HIV. This session was moderated by Patty Solomon (McMaster University) and speakers Richard Harding (Cicely Saunders Institute, Kings College), Stephanie Nixon (University of Toronto, International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation), Darren Brown (Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Rehabilitation in HIV Association), Chris Lucas (Nine Circles Community Health Centre) and Kate Murzin (realize) presented on HIV and healthy aging across the contexts of Canada, UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
