The Canadian Association of Nurses in HIV/AIDS Care (CANAC) is pleased to present the first episode of our Outspoken podcast, where we will learn the ins and outs of providing care to people with HIV who don’t have permanent immigration status in Canada. This means their health insurance and coverage is minimal, expired or they never had access to it in the first place. For that, we need to know more about the Blue Door Clinic.
Episode Written & Produced by Jeff Reinhart and Katie Connolly.
Podcast is produced by CANAC.
