Syphilis: Key Populations in Canada
Thursday, February 4th 2021, 1-2 PM EST
Several key populations have been disproportionately affected during the syphilis epidemic in Canada in recent years. The Public Health Agency of Canada recently released an in-depth look at syphilis in Canada in the past decade in a report titled Syphilis in Canada: Technical report on epidemiological trends, determinants and interventions. This webinar will present an overview of a few key populations examined in the report, namely the indigenous population, gbMSM, pregnant women, people who use drugs, and people living with HIV. The aim of this webinar is to provide updated information to organizations interacting with these key populations on their respective background information, epidemiological trends, and interventions.

INHSU Prisons: Speed-geeking event
What is speed-geeking?
‘Speed-Geeking’ is a fun, interactive activity where you will get a snapshot on a range of topics from across the globe. You will be placed into a breakout room with 8-10 other attendees, where you will hear a range of short talks from our ‘geeks’, who are global experts in their field. There will also be some time for a short discussion with your ‘geek’ before they move on to the next breakout room. It’s a similar premise to speed-dating – hence the name!
