Description

AIDS PEI is a community-based organization that serves all of Prince Edward Island. By working with others to develop and implement programs for prevention, education, support and advocacy, AIDS PEI encourages a supportive environment for people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Operational funding from ACAP supports five programs: public awareness, harm reduction, organizational development, prevention and education, and the creation of supportive environments. The project's success will be demonstrated through increased access to HIV/AIDS health services; increased awareness of risk-reduction strategies; and improved programming for women, young people, inmates of provincial institutions, and the gay, lesbian and bisexual community.
