Julio Montaner
Awarded Order of BC

August 10, 2010 - Dr. Julio Montaner , director of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, is one of fifteen extraordinary British Columbians who will be receiving the Order of British Columbia this year. The Order recognizes British Columbians who have made a difference, who have contributed with excellence and distinction, and whose contributions provide inspiration to everyone.

Dr. Montaner is being recognized for his work in the development of a revolutionary strategy aimed to curb the growth of the HIV epidemic in British Columbia. The made-in-BC strategy known as "treatment as prevention" aims to utilize HIV medication called High Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) to prevent HIV transmission through viral suppression. Recognized as the gold standard treatment for HIV, HAART uses a combination of drugs to stop HIV from progressing to AIDS, extends life expectancy, and significantly reduces HIV-related deaths in diagnosed individuals.
