HIV Community Link's programs focus on prevention, education, and support. Working in Calgary and Southeastern Alberta, our organization is dedicated to offering wraparound services to achieve long-term outcomes for people at risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI) through sexual health and substance use.
Based on a philosophy of harm reduction, we meet clients wherever they are on their journey, free of judgment, and with the goal to help improve their current situations.
Our mission is wellness for individuals and communities affected by HIV and hepatitis C through education, prevention, and support.
