Who We Are - About the Research Team

This research was part of a much larger research project funded by the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR) and the British Columbia Medical Services Foundation (BCMSF).

This larger project, known as ORCHID, was designed to understand the beliefs, experiences, opinions, and activities of both sex workers and their commercial partners. The ORCHID team is comprised of researchers from Simon Fraser University (SFU), the University of British Columbia (UBC), the British Columbia Center for Disease Control (BCCDC), and the Asian Society for the Intervention of AIDS (ASIA).
