Cure Research

Research advancements have transformed HIV into a chronic, manageable disease. Treatment, however, is a daily, life-long regimen from a person living with HIV. In Canada, the cost of treating HIV of one person's lifetime is estimated to be $250,000.

 

A cure is essential to ending HIV and AIDS. CANFAR has invested over $8.5 million in cure research, including a promising national research collaboration studying new approaches to curing HIV infection.
