As AIDS Awareness Week begins and with World AIDS Day today, our organization hosts the Canadian Youth Forum and Conversation on Sexually Transmitted & Blood-Borne Infections (STBBIs) from the 2nd-6th.
This national training forum invites youth leaders from all over Canada to understand the relationships between STBBI transmission, bullying, and discrimination. Participants will not only walk away being more informed, but will be given the tools to promote public health awareness and action in their schools and communities. They will then run activities working with thousands of youth across Canada.
Our funders & community partners are an important resource for HIV and AIDS education. They can offer support and access to tools and resources for educators or other partners who provide classroom education that can enrich student learning and encourage educators to fulfill their responsibilities.
Personally I did not have access to such comprehensive resources from when I was first learning about sexual health. It wasn’t until I became involved in my University’s Gender & Sexuality Resource Centre that I became more aware of my sexual health practices. It would be so amazing if educators and administrators could print off some of these great resources to share in their classrooms.
Check out some information that I found interesting for this year’s World AIDS Day:
