In accordance with recommendations outlined by the AIDS Bureau of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Action positive VIH/sida is working at building capacities to better meet the needs of the most at-risk populations.
Action positive is actively taking part in the three following initiatives:
The African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario
The African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO) provides leadership in the response to HIV/AIDS in African, Caribbean and Black communities in Ontario. We are a provincial coalition of organizations and individuals committed to HIV prevention, education, advocacy, research, treatment, care and support for African, Caribbean and Black communities.

Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance
Action positive is now a member of the Gay Men’s Sexuel Health Alliance (GMSH) and benefits from resources and training endorsed by the AIDS Bureau. The nature of GMSH’s work is to create a system within the HIV sector in Ontario through which front-line workers, HIV researchers, public health, policy makers and community members can work together in gay men’s health and well-being.

Women & HIV/AIDS Initiative (WHAI)
Action positive is building strategies with WHAI to reinforce its capacity in serving women who live with HIV. WHAI is an answer to community need for a flexible response to HIV/AIDS among women in Ontario that takes into account the structural and societal factors that make women vulnerable to HIV. WHAI is funded by the AIDS Bureau of the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care.
