HIV affects individuals and their communities. Our vision is communities thriving now and beyond HIV.
In Ontario, HIV/AIDS has had a particularly devastating effect on gay men as well as men and women who inject drugs and those who are members of Ontario’s African Caribbean and Black communities and Indigenous communities. Through our work, we strive to support these communities’ efforts to live and thrive with HIV, and to see beyond HIV so they can prosper in all aspects of their lives.
People living with HIV are an essential part of our network. They drive our capacity to imagine thriving beyond HIV. Their knowledge and experience provide a more accurate picture of the challenges and helps us find more effective and feasible solutions. People living with HIV are part of our leadership; it is their right to participate in decision-making that affects their lives and health. Learn more about our commitment to the greater involvement of people living with HIV.
The OHTN operates on the traditional lands of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, the Petun, and the Mississauga’s of the New Credit First Nation, and we acknowledge the Métis and Inuit relatives as well. This meeting place has been the home to many Indigenous people for thousands of years and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
