We are a community-based organization made up of dedicated, caring, committed individuals. Staff and volunteers alike provide support, education, and advocacy in a safe and confidential environment for HIV-positive individuals, their families, and their friends.
In 1987, we started the AIDS Committee of Niagara. We were an advisory committee to the Niagara Regional Public Health Service’s AIDS Program. We evolved from a committee to a not-for-profit, community-based AIDS service organization (ASO).
It’s time for #RedScarfNiagara!
We are looking for knitters to help us with the Red Scarf Project this year. If you are the crafty type, please help us by knitting or crocheting a red scarf for AIDS Awareness Week. We have plenty of red yarn to go around, so if you’d like to help, please contact Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Big PrEP Announcement
Last week the Ontario Government announced that the drugs that prevent HIV (PrEP) will be added to the formulary for Ontario Drug Benefits. This is an exciting announcement!
This announcement means that the drug will be covered to prevent HIV for those who are on Ontario Works or ODSP. The drug will be partially covered for those who use Trillium drug benefits.
Because the drug is on the formulary, it will likely be covered by private drug plans going forward. It will also likely be covered under OHIP+, the new prescription benefit for people 25 and under, coming in 2018.
Because PrEP is a medicine, you must consult a doctor to see if it is right for you. For more information you can also visit www.thesexyouwant.ca/prep/
If you have any questions about PrEP, please call or email Hailea at 905-984-8684 ext 120 or email@example.com
