PrEP in Durham - 'L'autre pilule bleue'

'The Other Blue Pill' posters (English and French - poster only) were created to promote the PrEP in Durham  Campaign website - www.PrEPinDurham.ca.  The aim of the campaign is to make gay, bi and msm aware of what PrEP is, how it is used and how to access PrEP in Durham region. The website features videos of a man living in Durham region who is on and is accessing PrEP locally, general information about PrEP and how to access it is provided, along with links to various resources.

Internalized Homophobia

This booklet on Internalized Homophobia was created by an Intern student working with our Black, African and Caribbean Community Outreach (BACCO) program.  The booklet was created for outreach to LGBQ communities, including African-Caribbean and Black (ACB) populations. This content in the guide is used with permission from Revel and Riot

PEP in Durham Campaign posters

Three posters to promote PEP awareness in the Durham region.  The campaign directs the viewer to the campaign website www.pepdurham.ca  that provides more detailed information on PEP.

E-Team Report newsletter

Our Education Services newsletter.  This is the Winter 2013 edition.  Published periodically to inform service providers and the community of the work we are doing and services we can provide.

Got Balls? On-Site HIV testing

Created with the help of one of our clients to help promote on-site anonymous HIV rapid point of care testing.  This poster with two versions was used to get the attention of gay, bi and MSM to visit website to request appointment date/time.  In addition to this poster Durham Regional Public Health had their own poster to promote the testing along with tear-off cards.

SPEAK Pocket Guide

This resource was created as a discreet engagement tool for ACB communities. This tool is an effective method to educate those from all generations, concerned about HIV in the ACB community.

Designed in a pocket size to make it easy to carry and afford discretion to the person who picks up the resource.  Cover features 'SPEAK' in ten languages familiar to African and Caribbean communities.

HIV Stigma Campaign

HIV Stigma campaign was created with feedback from gay/bi/msm in the Durham Region using an online survey.  The sample with posters A and B are the original concepts that we posted on the survey.  30 men completed the survey.  A $100 Stag Shop gift card was offered as an incentive for the men to complete the survey.


Harm Reduction Program Evaluation Report

Each year we complete a program evaluation for our harm reduction services. This is a student-led initiative that provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in program evaluation. With staff supervision, our students worked together to develop appropriate questions, survey a portion of our clients, tabulate the information collected, and create the evaluation report. The added benefit of student involvement is that the clients participating don’t have to provide feedback to a staff member.
