Canadian Positive People Network (CPPN)
Réseau canadien des personnes séropositives (RCPS)
Our work with, by and for people living with HIV and HIV co-infections is
Focused and Intentional.
We are a committed Canadian Network of community advocates and activists!
As Canada's only national, independent network of, by, and for people living with HIV and HIV co-infections (e.g., HIV/hepatitis C co-infection), our members represent a broad and diverse range of key priority (and often marginalized) populations, including people who use or used drugs, people with different abilities/people with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, Ethnocultural communities, including immigrants, migrants and refugees, and foreign-born, non-status persons who reside in Canada, gay men and other men who have sex with men, people engaged in the sale, trade or purchase of sex, people living in or recently released from correctional facilities, transgender people, youth, "consumer-survivors" of mental health and wellness issues, and women and girls.
Without exception or compromise, every CPPN member is afforded ongoing/continual opportunities to engage in dialogue and deliberation with one another and with the CPPN Leadership Team (i.e. its Board of Directors, its Executive Director, and its committees, sub-committees, and issue-specific working groups (e.g., women’s issues), and in the active development and delivery of community-based activities, actions, and interventions at the local, regional, and/or national levels, and in all ongoing assessments of needs, gaps, and priorities upon which the CPPN’s work will focus.
