HIV Edmonton has qualified staff who are trained in HIV and AIDS Care and Support. Support is on a drop-in basis during our regular business hours. HIV Edmonton staff work within a solution focused model, concentrating our efforts on maintaining quality of life for all individuals affected by HIV and AIDS.
Our staff are trained in support to a culturally diverse community and, as such, are sensitive to cultural differences as they impact attitudes in supporting those affected by HIV and AIDS.
HIV Edmonton also provides outreach to individuals and communities to provide support, information and education, for example; access to testing and treatment, accompany to appointments or court, stigma and discrimination issues and sexual health.
Thanks to advances in treatment, people with HIV are living much longer than ever before. It is estimated that up to 12 per cent of HIV-positive people in Canada are older than 50 years of age; this number is expected to increase by as much as 20 per cent over the next decade.
