The HIV Social, Behavioural and Epidemiological Studies Unit (HIV Studies Unit) was established in 1994 under the University of Toronto’s Academic Priorities Program, with joint funding from the AIDS Bureau, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and the Faculty of Medicine. The HIV Studies Unit was established as an extra-departmental unit in the Faculty of Medicine sponsored by the Department of Public Health Sciences (now the Dalla Lana School of Public Health) and the Department of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation (now the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation). Within the University and in Canada, the Unit provides a unique focus on community and public health issues, bringing together social and behavioural scientists and epidemiologists.
