The GSHI team is committed to knowledge translation and exchange to ensure our research is responsive to and informs evidence-based policy and practice in Canada and globally.
Beyond ensuring our research is peer reviewed and held to the highest ethical and scientific standards, we work closely with the affected community and a diversity of stakeholders, including legal and human rights experts, community-based organizations, service providers, health authorities, government officials, international policy bodies and media to communicate our results to the wider public, policy makers and health providers through community reports, plain-language summaries, policy briefs, press releases, editorials and presentations at community and public policy events. To date, our research has contributed to hundreds of media reports and articles, and has formed expert evidence in cases in BC, Ontario and Canadian courts. Our research also helped form international guidelines on HIV prevention, treatment and care.
