HIV West Yellowhead was formed in the spring of 1988 and was officially called “AIDS: A Positive Coordinated Community Response Society of Jasper”. The main catalyst for the formation of the society was that a man affected by AIDS decided to return home to Jasper to live out his last days. This syndrome, although becoming common in larger centres, still carried with it a lot of fear and stigma. The main goal of the society at that time was to support people living with HIV and AIDS and to raise awareness about the virus. Using a harm reduction model that includes education, leadership, outreach, and partnerships, HIV West Yellowhead supports those at risk of, or affected by HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and sexually transmitted blood borne infections. We are working towards a world free of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and Sexually Transmitted Blood Borne Infections.
