In 2004 the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, one of the top 20 universities in the world, and the Shanghai Center for Disease Control (SCDC) started their international cooperation on a long-term project called Prevention, Care and Support for Vulnerable Populations at Risk for HIV/STI in Shanghai, China to collect data and intervene in practices leading to Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) prevention and control. The goal of the project is to reduce HIV and STI transmission through an integrated program of research, interventions, evaluation, training; capacity building and knowledge transfer that links research to policy and practice.
Red Gate interviewed researchers and shot video footage in Canada and Shanghai to produce a 20 minute video (as well as the shorter 5 minute cut above) documenting the project, highlighting the project’s positive impact on the prevention, care and support of vulnerable populations at risk of STIs and HIV in Shanghai. The video was shown at the IRDC symposium in Ottawa on September 30th, 2012 and will be posted to the Dalla Lana School of Public Health websites.
