A Qualitative Study of Community-Based HIV/AIDS Prevention Interventions, Programs, and Projects for Rural and Remote Regions in Canada: Implementation Challenges and Lessons Learned

Conclusions: Rural/remote HIV/AIDS programs across Canada expressed similar challenges and lessons learned, suggesting that there is potential for knowledge exchange, and development of a community of practice. Top-down planning and evaluation models may fail to capture program achievements in rural/remote contexts. The long-term engagement practices that render rural/remote programs promising do not always conform to planning and implementation requirements of limited funding.

From depression to relationship problems or mood swings, too much or too little glucose (sugar) circulating in the blood can trigger behavior and thought patterns that may seem unrelated to how much insulin is released by your pancreas. Out of control glucose levels influence how you feel and make decisions, your beliefs and, yes, your attitude, a very necessary component of your overall care.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states less than half the number of people with diabetes who have depression get treated, which leads to worsening stat...

We appreciate the feedback and thoughtful discussion offered by Dr Hai and colleagues. We are pleased our paper is generating meaningful conversations as we all move through this uncharted territory of ethical conundrums created by the COVID-19 pandemic. As Dr Hai and colleagues point out, we are certainly aware of the differences between the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s/1990s and the current COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic exceeds what any of us have seen, and therefore requires learning from all similar healthcare crises in history.
