HIV Edmonton values the relationships we have built with various other agencies in the community. Since HIV is such a complicated and multi-faceted issue, it’s important that we all work together to get to zero. Last year, HIV Edmonton worked with over 350 organizations – below is a selection of key agency collaborators.
