Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC) is a leading AIDS Service Organization (ASO) in Ontario that has led the way in terms of HIV/AIDS advocacy, prevention initiatives, education, and support services for 30 years. We are a community-inspired organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals and diverse communities living with, at-risk for or affected by the challenges associated with HIV/AIDS and Hep C. Our organization operates under the general principle of having the courage to do what is right. We provide practical and psychosocial support; counselling services and programmes; residential programs; education, prevention and stigma reduction strategies and services; harm reduction services; referrals; as well as social support programmes and opportunities to those living with, affected by and at risk for HIV/AIDS and Hep C. Working within an anti-racist/ anti-discrimination and harm reduction framework, RHAC meets people where they are at without judgement, and supports people to make informed choices about their own lives. RHAC strives to remove barriers – such as stigma; it ensures that education and prevention are at the core of its mission and constantly reflect new and emerging needs. RHAC honours its history, and is inspired by the need to plan for the future.
