CATIE’s HIV and Hepatitis C Testing course for Ontario-based service providers

CATIE is now offering a free HIV and Hepatitis C Testing course for Ontario-based service providers!


Are you a service provider in the province of Ontario who works with people who might benefit from hepatitis C testing and/or HIV testing? All service providers who have a role to play in supporting people to be connected to testing, treatment, and linkages to care, would benefit from this course. Please feel free to forward this email to interested colleagues!



April 29th – May 22nd


CATIE’s HIV and Hepatitis C Testing course aims to develop in-depth knowledge of testing technologies, approaches to testing, and how all service providers play an important role in reaching people living with hepatitis C or HIV. This course will not teach participants how to test; rather, by exploring different approaches to testing and the barriers that exist, service providers come away with strategies to facilitate testing and linkage to care, treatment, and prevention in their communities and with their clients.  


This course includes approximately five – six hours of online instruction delivered over five weeks. It includes weekly self-directed modules and collaborative discussion boards facilitated by a CATIE Health Educator, and an interactive online meeting with an Educator and fellow students. This online meeting has been adapted to include key messages from Ontario’s updated HIV testing guidelines.

HIV and Hepatitis C Testing includes four online modules with a variety of learning activities such as eLearning units, readings, discussion board assignments, videos and webinars. You can work through each weekly module at your own pace.
