“Indigenous harm reduction is love.” – Traditional Knowledge Carrier, Wanda Whitebird

The purpose of this policy brief is to outline Indigenous approaches to harm reduction. We also recommend ways in which governments and organizations can incorporate Indigenous approaches to harm reduction into their on-going and future efforts to support the self-defined, self-determined, and distinctions-based health and wellness of First Nations, Inuit and Métis.

In partnership with the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN)

Though social media and ICT are ripe with potential when it comes to the delivery of HIV-related services, as fairly new approaches, there is still much to learn about how to optimize their use. Digital Liaisons contains a variety of lessons, ideas, resources and examples of interventions that use social media and ICT in the context of HIV prevention, education, treatment, advocacy and support. The case studies featured in the resource highlight initiatives that were carried out by community-based organizations, who were kind enough to share their reflections, suggestions and recommendations with us.

The objective of this document is to synthesize national and international evidence and promising practices in HIV/TB/HCV/STBBI (HIV/Tuberculosis/Hepatitis C/Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne Infections) related prevention, treatment and care programming and delivery models in relation to newcomer health and social well-being.

Building on ICAD’s extensive history of twinning, knowledge exchange and capacity development, Addressing HIV in Canada and Globally offers us programmatic approaches, insights, and lessons learned in responding to complex social and structural factors that continue to disempower and drive HIV infection rates globally. While the focus of these case studies often speaks to HIV programming, the lessons presented here can easily be applied to other sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBIs) and settings, including in Canada, to ensure that no one is left behind. This resource features innovative projects led by ICAD members including, Rooftops Canada, Handicap International, Help Lesotho, CARE Canada, and World University Service Canada (WUSC).

This National Consensus Statement is meant to be used as an advocacy tool to ensure the specific HIV research priorities of women, trans people and girls are included in the next generation of HIV and AIDS research responses undertaken in Canada.

The purpose of this toolkit is to assist Canadian organizations working with international partners to effectively engage in their work. An evaluation report of the NPT communications project has already been prepared; this toolkit focuses primarily on the partnership model rather than the content of the workshops.

Uncovering the Links Between Social Inequity and HIV/AIDS , 2007

As global citizens and a part of a multicultural society, we have a very important leadership role to play in marshalling an effective response, both nationally and globally. It is our hope that through this resource kit, students, facilitators, post-secondary institutions, AIDS service organizations, non-governmental and faith-based organizations will acquire a deeper understanding of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the lives of the millions affected by the disease.
