Wise Practices Abstract
The CAAN Wise Practices V capacity building conference is a unique opportunity for APHAs, community workers, government representatives, students, researchers and academics, health care providers, and community members to come together to share with each other and engage in a process of mutual learning. Participation in this event is part of our response to HIV and AIDS in Aboriginal communities and contributes towards improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people living with and at risk for HIV in Canada.
CAAN conferences attract diverse participants who represent a variety of life experiences, identities, and backgrounds. Delegates will include representatives from regional Aboriginal AIDS service organizations, addictions services organizations, Aboriginal people living HIV or AIDS and health workers from diverse backgrounds. Academics are invited and encouraged to participate. Abstracts should be prepared with this target audience in mind – using plain and inclusive language as much as possible. Workshop abstracts should describe what practical and in-depth knowledge and skills will be presented and practiced. Abstracts about Aboriginal peoples and HIV and AIDS will be given priority consideration.
