CUHHRC in Collaboration with CWGHR and CAHR provided a document entitled “A Road Map on HIV and Rehabilitation Research at the 23rd Annual Canadian Conference on HIV/AIDS Research” for CAHR 2014 delegates. This purpose of this road map was to highlight HIV and rehabilitation research presented at the 23rd Annual Canadian Conference on HIV Research in order to increase awareness of research in the field.

We conducted a content analysis of all the CAHR 2014 abstract and broadly classified them according to the six research priorities in the Framework of New Research Priorities in HIV, Disability and Rehabilitation : 1) episodic health and disability; 2) aging with HIV across the lifespan; 3) concurrent health conditions; 4) access to rehabilitation and models of rehabilitation service provision; 5) effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions; and 6) enhancing outcome measurement in HIV and rehabilitation research. The priorities are in no particular order of importance. While some abstracts may span multiple priorities, they are mentioned once in the map.

Post CAHR 2014, a rapporteur summary of the HIV and Rehabilitation content presented was developed. Click here to access the rapporteur summary.
