The Centres for HIV/AIDS Population Health and Health Services Research program builds on its predecessor the Centres for Population Health and Health Services Research Development in HIV/AIDS Program, which was launched in 2007. In 2012, a mid-term evaluation of the original program was conducted and this new program builds on the strengths of the previous program and the funded Centres and aims to further enhance the impact of the program on the HIV epidemic in Canada. It represents a major investment by the CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative, which is supported by the Federal Initiative to Address HIV/AIDS in Canada, and is expected make an important contribution to the national response to HIV/AIDS.

The Centres for HIV/AIDS Population Health and Health Services Research program will provide core infrastructure funding for multi-jurisdictional and multidisciplinary teams of researchers and their stakeholders. The funded Centres will specialize in health and policy research on: 1) the social, cultural environmental and individual determinants driving the HIV/AIDS epidemic; and/or 2) health services for people living with or at risk of HIV. The Centres will build on strengths of the research community and opportunities to engage in innovative, collaborative and meaningful ways with communities, policy makers and program managers in different regions of the country. It will mobilize the talent, expertise and capacity of different sectors and jurisdictions to solve current and emerging challenges with the ongoing transmission of HIV and for people living with HIV in Canada. The overall goal of the Centres will be to improve health and access to effective programs and services for people living with and at risk of HIV, particularly for populations most affected (e.g., Aboriginal communities, men who have sex with men). The Centres are expected to work with one another and other relevant networks and partners in order to minimize duplication of efforts and maximize impacts and contributions to reductions in HIV transmission and improved health outcomes for Canadians.
