CHABAC’s Latest Resource:

Emerging Prevention Technologies and Canada’s African, Caribbean and Black Communities

The purpose of the resource is to provide service providers with an overview of what we know about biomedical approaches to HIV prevention, and highlight ways in which these strategies are perceived as relevant or not for African, Caribbean and Black communities. The fact sheet comprehensively explores a variety of approaches, explores barriers and gives service providers messaging to promote increased awareness of these effective biomedical interventions.
