S.U.C.C.E.S.S. HIV & Hepatitis C Intervention Project

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. aims to help the community overcome barriers to the Canada health care system by providing knowledge and connection to a healthy life. S.U.C.C.E.S.S., in collaboration with Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS), was funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to develop a HIV & Hepatitis C Intervention Project targeting immigrants and refugees, in particular ethno-cultural communities such as Chinese, Filipino, Vietnamese, and South Asians, in the Lower Mainland. Our project is expected to raise awareness and to strengthen the capacity and knowledge of community workers, and the immigrant and refugee communities to prevent infection and improve health outcomes. Our educational workshops provide information on the introduction to the Canada health care system, basic knowledge on HIV & Hep C, risks of transmission, preventive measures and treatment.
