Collaboration at the heart of HQ

HQ is a centre of excellence, using technology in innovative ways to make it easier for cis guys into guys and two-spirit, transgender and non-binary people to get services, monitor that these treatments are working and improving health outcomes, and to train the next generation of health providers for these vulnerable communities.


Research conducted at HQ will ensure services evolve and improve to meet changing needs, allowing HQ’s cutting-edge IT and testing methods to be shared with researchers and health care providers in Canada and around the world.
