Fifty years of research and innovation at SFU: stemming an epidemic
Since the early 1990s, SFU health sciences professor Robert Hogg has been conducting demographic research on B.C.’s HIV-positive population. With an eye towards influencing health policy decisions and improving health outcomes, his work has earned him an international reputation as a leading population health researcher.
More recently, Hogg’s focus has turned to analyzing health trends among marginalized HIV-positive groups such as injection drug users living with HIV/AIDS. He’s also investigating how access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) influences sexual practice and infection rates among men who have sex with other men and how ART affects those who suffer simultaneously from HIV and age-related diseases.
