Strengthening the Capacity of Service Providers to Deliver HIV Prevention Programs to the African Diaspora in Canada Project:
The purpose of the project was to ensure that African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities in Canada were meaningfully engaged in HIV prevention efforts, to expand HIV prevention efforts and to build the capacity of service providers, both mainstream and African, Caribbean and Black-specific, so that they are better equipped to deliver HIV prevention and other HIV services to the ACB communities.
To build the capacity of service providers, the project aimed to deliver regional workshops co-hosted with key focal points ("hubs") which are organizations located in the cities where the workshops would take place and are already working with ACB communities locally.
