CHABAC continues to release a number of fact sheets and other resources to provide service providers with information to help them better address the needs and priorities of African, Caribbean and Black communities in Canada.
CHABAC Fact Sheets
This is the second of two fact sheets focused on the HIV Engagement Cascade. The purpose of this fact sheet is to provide examples of interventions in Canada focused on African, Caribbean and Black communities, all along the different parts of the Cascade.
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.
The purpose of this fact sheet is to shed light on community mobilization as a way to effectively raise awareness, improve prevention, reduce stigma and address HIV and AIDS amongst African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities in Canada.
People from African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities face multiple forms of stigma and discrimination. HIV-related stigma is just one of these. The purpose of this fact sheet is to raise awareness among health and social service professionals about the experience and impact of HIV-related stigma on ACB communities.
This information sheet is for persons living with HIV in Canada who are thinking of making a refugee claim or who have already made a refugee claim.
