This webinar explores evidence for STBBI interventions in corrections, and describes the results of the You Matter Project, in which people who are incarcerated, corrections officers, health care providers, researchers, and representatives from community organizations co-created policies and guidelines for STBBI care in BC Provincial Correctional Centres.
This webinar overviews the impact of evacuations on First Nations communities through two case studies: the Ashcroft Indian Band following the Elephant Hill Wildfire in 2016, and the Siksika Nations following the Bow River flood in 2013.
This document summarizes key findings from the Manitoba Harm Reduction Network Evaluation. Findings include recommendations for changes to programs and practices that can be made by harm reduction service providers, clinics, and other public health organizations.
