ACAP Projects in Newfoundland and Labrador

AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador (ACNL)

Organization

AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador

Description

The AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador (ACNL) is a community-based, consumer-focused organization that serves all of Newfoundland and Labrador. The organization's mandate is to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and to support those who live with and/or are affected by it. Operational funding from ACAP supports three programs: organizational development, prevention education and outreach, and health promotion for people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs). The project's success will be demonstrated through improved access to health services for PHAs; enhanced partnerships with agencies that serve vulnerable populations; and improved prevention education for young people, gay men, people who inject drugs and Aboriginal people who live off-reserve.
