A roundtable lunch on HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) Nursing Education to be held prior to the IAS 2015 Conference in Vancouver, which will convene a wide range of nursing experts in HIV and HCV, program implementers and leaders in nurse education & research. The roundtable will address HIV vulnerabilities for rural and remote health service users and shed light on the barriers related to scaling up and integrating prevention in resource limited and policy constrained settings. This will be an opportunity to bring together experts in the field to discuss the concepts of HIV and HCV nursing program implementation, to share experiences from in-country initiatives and to prioritize approaches towards achieving high quality Hepatitis C implementation plans in BC First Nations communities.
