HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C (HCV) Prevention Education Program
This program teaches youth about the risks of HIV/AIDS and the Hepatitis C virus (HCV), the steps to take to prevent infection and various treatment options. Program workers can also connect youth with crisis counsellors and provide referrals to other community programs and resources. Youth have access to a needle exchange program as well as other harm reduction supplies.
