Follow this advice to protect yourself and others in the home, as well as those in your community.

When it comes to fighting epidemics – first HIV, now COVID-19 – the war is personal

 

John MacLeod is a primary-care physician with 30 years of experience in HIV care.

Being a gay man in the 1980s was terrifying enough. Homophobia was pervasive at the time, and coming out came with substantial risks – including the threat of rejection and violence. This was a time before human-rights protections for gays. Many lived silently in shame.

When I started medical school in 1982, reports of gay men dying from an unknown illness started to appear in the news. HIV and I both came out in the early 1980s, and so my future path would be paved by an epidemic.

Phone & Virtual Care

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. 

Corona Virus (Covid-19) & HIV

Stay up-to-date with the latest information and news on COVID-19 and HIV through the International Aids Society.

The impact of COVID-19 on people living with HIV is not fully known yet. At present there is no evidence to suggest that there is an increased risk of infection and increased severity of illness for people living with HIV (with the understanding that they are not immunosuppressed and/or have no other co-infections or co-morbidities).
