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 PROGRAM SCIENCE MODEL RESOURCES
CHABAC is thrilled to present the finalized bilingual version of its Program Science Model Training Resource and the final bilingual working draft of its Program Science Model. We would like to thank all those who contributed to this work, and welcome your feedback and interest in the ACB specific Program Science Model we have developed as part of our PHAC CAF funded project. We look forward to refining this model with feedback from our network, and will be posting a webinar recorded at the Canada Pavillion at AIDS 2020 where CHABAC Co-Chair Kwaku Adomako, CHABAC Coordinator James A. Forbes presented the resource and the background work that went into it to a receptive audience. We would also like to thank CHABAC Co-Chair Dr. Aniela Dela Cruz for her input in developing the presentation.
The Canadian HIV/AIDS Black African and Caribbean Network (CHABAC) Program Science Model (PSM) isan unapologetic interpretation of Program Science through an African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) lens. It presents a program science model that is shaped by the lived experience of ACB communities and agencies charged with supporting them.
ACB communities have a long history of involvement in science, have rich knowledge bases from which to draw, and the use of an ACB-centric program science approach can lead to better results for those living with and at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS. It uses principles of consultation, evidence gathering and evaluation, inclusion and organization to bring about better outcomes and results for ACB people living with HIV. This document will explain principles, key terms and provide you with examples that are relevant to your needs.
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.
