The Men's Fertility Study: understanding the fertility desires and intentions among HIV positive men living in Ontario

Advances in HIV treatment have contributed to tremendous shifts in the lives of people with HIV in Canada.

In addition, there are many youth who, if not technically homeless, experience precarious living situations. There are many reasons for this - poverty, family rejection, domestic violence, parental drug and/or alcohol misuse or a lack of space where young people feel they can be themselves. These circumstances make these so-called street-inv
