We offer programs and resources to women living with HIV and hepatitis C and women who are vulnerable to these diseases, as well as to health care and social services providers, throughout British Columbia. We support communities to provide a full spectrum of non-judgmental care to women and their families. Women with HIV and hepatitis C in BC can access our programs free of charge.
We support an active and engaged network of women living with HIV and hepatitis C and women who are vulnerable to these diseases. As part of this support we address the social conditions that impact the health of women living with or vulnerable to HIV and HCV. A wide variety of women access these services (some services are for women living with HIV only), and we use their input to guide us. We are trans-inclusive and child-friendly. Some women drop in every week, others for the lunch or food bank programs, and others only attend our annual weekend retreats. Let us know what would be helpful to you.
Our Knowledge Transfer & Exchange initiatives support an active and engaged network of Community Based Organizations (including people living with HIV or HCV working in the sector) as a whole. How can we make a difference for positive women and their communities? Listen, speak, and act. We aim to do just that working with individuals and organizations. Recognized as an expert on women’s HIV and HCV related health and accompanying social issues, we provide education and prevention information in a variety of ways.
I've learned about HIV treatment options, re-connected with old friends, met new friends, and been inspired by other women and their spirits.
