The Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program provides training to substance use, mental health and allied service providers in Ontario in order to increase knowledge of HIV/AIDS and to promote skills development.
OHSUTP is a service of Fife House and is funded by the AIDS Bureau, Ministry of Health and Long-term Care. A provincial Advisory Committee consisting of representatives from substance use and AIDS service organizations provides input into programming issues.
The two-day training offered by the Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program is by far one of the best I have attended in recent years. It is comprehensive and engaging, providing participants with relevant, current, and meaningful information related to the issues of HIV and substance use. This interactive training was presented by knowledgeable and dynamic facilitators, and in my opinion, is essential for anyone working within the social services field.
