Prevention Program

HIV related stigma and silence play a key role in why rates of infection among youth and adults in ACB communities are disproportionately higher. ACB people are many times more likely to be living with HIV than white Canadians and more than 2/3rds of all women living with HIV in Toronto are ACB.

The Black CAP Prevention Program aims to build partnerships in order to create safe spaces for members of the African, Caribbean, Black (ACB) community to participate in culturally sensitive dialogue around their HIV/AIDS, STI risk, sexual health and healthy relationships. The Program works to reach youth (under 29) and adults (30+).
