Thank You Coast Capital Savings for Supporting Youth Living with HIV!!

April 12, 2017
BC Women’s Oak Tree is leading recreational group sessions for young people living with HIV thanks to a $30,000 grant from Coast Capital Savings.

Thanks to a generous $30,000 grant from Coast Capital Savings, youth living with HIV in BC are now able to access youth-friendly education, group recreational activities and peer support through a new pilot project – the Positive Youth Project.

BC Women’s Oak Tree is collaborating with YouthCO to provide young people living with HIV with a supportive community of their peers. YouthCO is Canada’s only youth-driven HIV organization; a community of young leaders who work to affect meaningful change in the lives of youth living with HIV/AIDS.

Many HIV+ youth, whether infected with HIV in infancy or later on in life, struggle to maintain optimal adherence to their medications and to manage relationships. In fact, an HIV+ young person is at a higher risk of medication non-compliance, and dangerous health complications, than any other demographic. The Positive Youth Project provides youth with the opportunity to connect with their HIV+ peers and the experienced HIV youth educators at YouthCO during fun recreational activities in Vancouver.

Thanks to Coast Capital Savings, the Positive Youth Project is helping young people living with HIV to better cope with the stigma and isolation they experience – empowering them to lead a healthy life with HIV, rather than defined by HIV. 

 

BC Women’s Oak Tree Program has been a global pioneer in the provision of HIV care, research and education for women, infants and youth living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS, since 1994. This specialized clinic cares for all known HIV+ pregnant women and their infants in the province of BC, for 50% of all known HIV+ women, and all known HIV+ infants and children. Led by a team of internationally renowned experts, over 700 patients receive care annually from a multidisciplinary team of experts, including doctors, nurses, dieticians, outreach workers, pharmacists, social workers and counsellors.

HELLO,I'M Anna ramos by name, I WANT TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE OF HOW I GOT CURED FROM HIV BY HERBAL MEDICINE. It may sound strange! For the past 5years i have spent a lot of money in buying anti-retroviral medicines to strengthen my immune system and keep me healthy, until i read an article on the internet about an Africa Herbalist who uses herbs and roots to cure HIV and all kind of diseases. Thought i never believed he can cure HIV, but i decided to give it a try because i was desperate. Then i sent a message to the him on his email DR.ABUYAHERBALCURE@GMAIL.COM He prepared herbal medications and send it to me through DHL COURIER SERVICE and i took it as he instructed. 11days after, i went to the hospital to do a checkup, the result came out and i tested NEGATIVE. I’m sharing this with you, because i believe there’s someone out here who also desire to have this cure. feel free to send a message to him on his email DR.ABUYAHERBALCURE@GMAIL.COM or call, AND ALSO CHAT WITH HIN THROUGH VIA IMO CHAT OR WHATSAPP +2347039225049, and am sure he will be willing to help you and you will also have a testimony to share. please inform other victims about this.
