Ontario Positive Asians (OPA+) is an independent, peer-driven network for self-identified Asians living with HIV/AIDS (APHA) in Ontario and provides a culturally-safe space for members this diverse, vibrant, and culturally-rich community.
Our first evening on August 10, we start off with a bang of social connection via Zoom moderate by our peer cohosts. We believe many of us is longing for social connection and this is a great opportunity to reconnect. Second part of the evening we invited HQ Health Hub Mr. Jay Katz from OHTN as a presenter, he will give us an overview of the new HQ health Hub for LGBTQ community. In this session you will learn how this hub will benefit our community and services/program they provide.
Our second night of the gathering on August 17, we are pleased to have one of our original founders of O.P.A. Mr. Christian Hui to present on harm reduction which he is so passionate in this topic. During this session you will find ways to support individuals who are experiencing the process in harm reduction plus more. Our last part of the evening we will have a panel discussion on racism led by our peers. They are going to share their perspectives in racism and hopefully we can generate a healthy conversation amongst each other.
