ACB HIV Prevention Alliance Project: 1 Love 1 Stop

This program uses evidence and a practice-based approach to improve access to HIV prevention for sub-populations within African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) communities across Canada through education, community mobilization, increased access to HIV testing and prevention technologies, and barrier reduction for care. 

Even though the ACB population represents less than 3.5% of the Canadian population, this group accounts for 21.7% of all new HIV infections. It is well-documented that ACB populations, compared to the general population, experience multi-level barriers to accessing appropriate and responsive HIV services.  


Throughout this program, workshops will be delivered to service providers and ACB community members alike to promote knowledge mobilization on HIV prevention. Additionally, several pop-up events will be attended or hosted to further expand the network of support services.  

This initiative supports CAAT and other front-line community agencies across the country to provide low barrier access to HIV self-tests to reach the undiagnosed with HIV, and support people before, during and after they test with connections to prevention, care and treatment.
