Vision Statement:  A safe and inclusive world, free of discrimination.

About: HIV North has supported individuals living in Alberta’s North for over 30 years. They are a not-for-profit AIDS service organization based in Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray. They  promote awareness, initiate prevention and provide care and support throughout the northern region of the province. HIV North prides itself on being a Harm Reduction based agency. Harm Reduction is a public health philosophy which aims to reduce negative impact of a behavior, either on an individual and/or population basis. It involves an honest, open, non-judgmental approach to social issues while meeting people “where they are at”. This is realized through education, intervention and support. Their free needle distribution  program operates onsite, through street outreach, and through community pharmacy partners. Safer-sex supplies are also available onsite and through street outreach.
