Alberta

Note: The Alberta Community Council on HIV (ACCH) is a provincial network of AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) funded by Alberta Health and Wellness and the Public Health Agency of Canada. As a result of the third-party funding model in place in Alberta, the Public Health Agency of Canada does not have direct contribution agreements with ASOs in the province. This model suggests an alternative approach to funding as compared to other regions. Youth-specific programming is rolled up into the operational work of many of the organizations funded by Alberta Community HIV Fund (ACHF); there is no project funding stream in Alberta and, therefore, there are no youth-specific projects that are funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s AIDS Community Action Program (ACAP). It is important to note that ASOs in the province provide education and outreach to youth as part of their general operations, but because of the structure just described, more specific information on youth specific projects and activities was limited.
