It’s more important now, than ever, that folks living with HIV stay connected with their HIV care providers.

While access to our facilities may be limited, ARCH is continuing to provide care to our clients virtually with some appointments returning to in-person.  Please stay connected, check in, follow-up on your appointments, and keep taking your medication.

Home delivery is an option for those that can’t make it out to pick-up any medication needed.

Call 519-570-3687 ext. 310 or 307 to stay connected in care and please let us know if we can support you in any way!

We have partnered with a
recently launched HIV self-test program called I’m Ready! It is a national research program through which registered participants, 18 years of age and older, can order up to 3 free HIV self-test kits for delivery or to pick-up at a participation pickup location (like us!) near you. You will need a smart phone and access to wireless internet or data in order download the program’s mobile app so that you can formally register, which involves completing anonymous surveys, and to access the peer navigation support available to you before, during or after you self-test for HIV.

*Please note that this program is not affiliated with ACCKWA – we are simply a distribution site for Waterloo Region and are available to connect you to HIV care and other sexual health services! Call us at 519-570-3687 between 10 am and 6 pm Monday to Fridays for additional support and navigation.

Turning To One Another Working Group

ACCKWA’s Turning to One Another Working Group (TTOA WG) was created as an opportunity to encourage and leverage our service users’ experiences and insights. It has since evolved as a joint Peer-Staff initiative focused on improving the quality of life of those living with HIV, as well as increasing ACCKWA’s capacity to meet the HIV-related needs of our community.


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.
