For the past several years the OAN has worked to strengthen its response to PHAs in Ontario and to perfect the ways that we engage PHAs in the work we do.  At last year’s Annual Meeting, our Members and PHA delegates told us that we should move forward with the creation of an Advisory Committee of people living with HIV to inform our important work. Since this time the OAN board has worked to finalize the Committee’s terms or reference (TOR) and met with a working group of PHAs to give us feedback on the TOR and guidelines for Committee recruitment.

We’re very excited to move on to the next stage in our process and recruit Advisory Committee members. Click here for more information. If you are interested in getting involved please go here to complete the application, which must be submitted by February 29, 2020. Following this, a recruitment committee comprised of OAN board members, staff and working group members will interview and select ten participants for the Committee. We hope you get involved. If you have any questions about this process or the work of the Committee, please feel free to reach out to Tara Jewal at tjewal@oan.red.
