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.
I appreciated how thorough and current the information in the training was. I was very pleasantly surprised to learn so many new things (even in the substance 101 segment). Our general perception of the status of HIV/AIDS in Canada (based on the current media coverage) is that this disease has been nearly eradicated. It was an eye opener to learn how prevalent HIV/AIDS and Hep C are in certain segments of society. Bravo to Charles and Nick for informing those of us in the field of this tragic plight; and for giving us tools and hope to help to combat it!
