The Alberta Community Council on HIV supports community-based responses and provides provincial leadership through collective action and a unified voice. Our support takes the form of assisting the membership with skill and capacity building, as well as advocacy and coordination. ACCH takes the lead in the following areas in HIV and related issues:
Undertaking initiatives that are provincial in scope and benefit from the collective voice
Providing leadership in identifying issues, policy input and research at provincial and federal levels
Identifying systemic barriers and developing initiatives to address them
Building relationships with provincial and federal leaders to elevate awareness and influence policy and resource allocation
Identifying ways at the provincial level in which people at risk and those living with HIV and related issues can achieve greater involvement, or more meaningful involvement, in decisions affecting their lives
Identifying ways at the provincial and federal level for the expansion of harm reduction services; including education, overdose prevention, reduction of the stigmas, safe consumption sites and access to quality healthcare.
Providing services that can benefit from provincial economies of scale.
Provides stewardship of funds for member organizations.
