A resource-sharing community for Canadian HIV and hepatitis C service providers

Women and HIV/AIDS Initiative

WHAI is a community-based response to HIV and AIDS among cis and trans women in Ontario that takes into account the structural and societal factors that increase women's risk factors for HIV. This initiative, located in 16 AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) throughout the province, is funded by the AIDS Bureau of the ministry of Health and Long Term Care. 

The goals of WHAI are to: 

  • Reduce HIV transmission among women
  • Enhance local community capacity to address HIV and AIDS
  • Build safe environments to support women and their HIV and AIDS-related needs
