Ontario Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Strategy

282 Parliament St Toronto ON M4X 1A8

Since 1995, the Ontario Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Strategy has consistently evolved to respond to the changing epidemic within the Aboriginal population of Ontario. While we may share common issues and factors related to the disease with the mainstream, Indigenous differences in history, worldview, methods, approach, culture and tradition must be respected.

The Ontario Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Strategy was created by a steering committee composed of government representatives, researchers, community representatives and people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

The goal of the strategy is to provide culturally respectful and sensitive programs and strategies to respond to the growing HIV/AIDS epidemic among Aboriginal Peoples in Ontario, through promotion, prevention, long-term care, treatment and support initiatives consistent with harm reduction principles.

The strategy is a provincially mandated AIDS service organization that provides outreach and support services, through regional outreach workers, to off-reserve Aboriginal Peoples who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

What We Do: Programs and Support Services Education and Awareness Advocacy Research and Policy Access to Culturally Based Programs and Services Conquering Stigmas Wholistic and Unconditional Care Sexual Health and Testing Info Harm Reduction Approach Safe Drug Kits and Education Prevention and Intervention Work Sexual Health and Wellness
