BCCDC Foundation Open Award Program Funds Two New Projects!
Congratulations to Dr Gina Ogilvie and Dr Linda Hoang, both recently awarded BCCDC Foundation grants through the Open Award Program!
Dr Ogilvie’s award will enable improved access to high impact HIV prevention, treatment and care services for men who have sex with men in Rwanda and British Columbia by sharing methodologies to estimate the size of key populations most affected by HIV in both countries.
The goal of Dr Hoang’s project is to provide the foundation for a larger study that involves national and international collaborations to look at new engineered technologies to reduce the burden of healthcare-associated infections.
We hope these awards will assist Drs Ogilvie and Hoang in acquiring positive outcomes, and receiving further peer-reviewed support from other agencies. Congrats to both and their teams!
Stay tuned for the next BCCDC Foundation Open Awards Program, to be launched in August and with a deadline of October 1st.
