Introduction

What the evaluation found

Recommendations and responses

Considering the release of the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework, which has set the future of the integrated STBBI program, including HIV, viral hepatitis, and other sexually transmitted infections (STI), the following recommendations also apply to the evaluation of Viral Hepatitis and STI Activities at PHAC.

  1. Determine how federal investments will contribute to the goals outlined in the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework for Action, including reducing STBBI-related stigma and discrimination, and align investments with those populations with the highest burden of STBBI. Communicate this to external stakeholders and Canadians. (For all FI partners)
  2. Response: Develop and implement the Government of Canada's Action Plan on STBBI that will outline the actions that will be undertaken by FI partners and other Government of Canada departments to contribute to the goals of the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework.

  3. Explore partnerships and mechanisms to facilitate the dissemination and uptake of STBBI-related knowledge products. (Specific to PHAC)
  4. Response: Develop a strategy that outlines options and recommendations to enhance and facilitate the uptake of STBBI-related knowledge products including targeted activities for different stakeholder groups, such as primary care providers, and identify key stakeholders and partners who could support the development and mobilization of key products.

  5. Enhance the use of performance information by simplifying indicators within the current performance measurement strategy to allow for annual reporting of results. (For all FI partners)
  6. Response: Review the existing STBBI performance measurement strategy to align with Government of Canada's Action Plan on STBBI and the agreed upon FPT STBBI Indicators Framework.
