Large red ribbon, smaller pipe cleaner ribbons and glitter on a World AIDS Day poster.With so much content online, it can be challenging to find information that’s accurate and useful. We’ve compiled this list of resources that have been helpful to our project and might be helpful for you, too!

Health Information

Action Canada

Action Canada for Sexual Health & Rights describes their organization as “a progressive, pro-choice charitable organization committed to advancing and upholding sexual and reproductive health and rights in Canada and globally.” On their site you’ll find news about their advocacy, their Sexual Health Information Hub, and info on their Access Line (it’s available for questions about sexual health, pregnancy options, abortion, and safer sex)! Action Canada has advice re: Media Literacy and Sexual Health. There’s also an STI Test calculator tool, for a general idea of how often you should get tested. 

Booklet: Sexually Transmitted Infections 

The Public Health Agency of Canada’s STI booklet linked above provides a thorough overview of multiple sexually transmitted infections. At 99 pages in its print version, this little booklet contains details on all the most common infections. Like Action Canada, PHAC also shares insight on when to get tested for STIs.

CATIE: Canada’s source for HIV and hepatitis C information

From CATIE’s about page, “Originally founded in 1990 to share information among people living with HIV about new and emerging treatments, CATIE’s mandate has expanded to providing both treatment and prevention information on HIV and hepatitis C to frontline service providers across Canada. Our full legal name is the Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange, but today we operate under the name CATIE.”

Labrador-Grenfell Health

If you’re not sure how to reach your healthcare provider in Labrador, the above page from Labrador-Grenfell Health might help. Although our province recently transitioned multiple organizations into one provincial health authority, NL Health Services, contact and service information for the Labrador-Grenfell zone remains available on the LG Health website. This page provides information on Mental Health & Addictions services.
