CAAN’s research agenda is driven by our membership of Aboriginal people living with HIV and AIDS and Aboriginal organizations. Key areas of focus have included: access to care, treatment and support; stigma and discrimination; mental health and women’s needs. CAAN has led more than a dozen research projects over the past decade and has been an active research team member on more than 20 other research projects. In addition to innovative research projects, CAAN is also maintaining significant investment in capacity building regarding community-based and Indigenous research frameworks.
