February 2012 - Afro-Canadian Positive Network of BC is a non-profit organisation of HIV/AIDS infected and affected immigrants of African origin regardless of race or ethnicity who seek to find comfort, companionship and empowerment in a common cultural and social environment.

  • We care for hospitalized members' children.

  • We make home visits.

  • We find and provide culturally appropriate food.

  • We educate eachother on HIV/AIDS management, medications, prevention, STDs, sexual health, law, and disclosure issues.

  • We provide education on human rights in relation to the society we are living in.

  • We provide peer counselling for trauma, grief and resettlement issues.

  • We do pre- and post-test peer counselling.

  • We do community outreach programs.

  • We encourage our members to be part of other HIV/AIDS organizations to benefit from healing retreats, educational meetings, and as a progression into the larger community.

  • We interact with various other HIV/AIDS organisations for the betterment of all the people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in British Columbia and the rest of the country.

  • We believe in freedom from shame and guilt and that continuous spiritual growth enhances self confidence leading to a positive outlook on life in the face of all adversity.
