ACCKWA Strategic Plan 2016-2020

Vision

At ACCKWA, we work toward a future where new HIV, hepatitis C, and sexually-transmitted or blood-borne infections are rare in Waterloo Region. People living with HIV will feel that maintaining health, well-being and full community participation are achievable, realistic goals.

  • address the social determinants of health that create stigma, discrimination, and vulnerability for our service users; and
  • provide excellent HIV care and support to individuals, families and most-affected communities.
