We are dedicated to empowering individuals to make informed decisions related to their health.

HIV & STI FACTS
STIs and HIV are potential risks of unprotected sex, but by arming yourself with clear and correct info you can make informed decisions about your sex life. Here you will find a summary of the most common STIs and more details about HIV. It’s important to remember that HIV and STIs usually don’t show any symptoms until late in their progress, so the ONLY way to be sure of your status is to get tested at a clinic – see our link on Testing for more info.

In 1987, ACCM was run by a group of volunteers and although we have grown since, we still very much depend on the work of our wonderful volunteers. Without their time and effort, it would have been impossible for us to develop the wide range of programs and services that we continue to run today. We are always looking for people to join us, so take a look at the volunteer opportunities we currently have and find out how you can get involved!

Webinar from the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network:
Disclosure as a patient
Do I have an obligation to disclose my HIV-positive status to my dentist? If I disclose my status to a doctor, can he/she disclose that information to another health-care professional without my consent? Can I access my health-record? What can I do if I experience discrimination? To learn more about your privacy rights in the health-care context, join us for a one hour free webinar organized by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network on December 10 from 1:00 to 2:00pm EDT (in English) – email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance.
