Yúusnewas is an Indigenous peer-led education program that provides workshops on HIV and sexual health in urban and rural communities across British Columbia. We approach the topics of sexual health and harm reduction by centering Indigenous perspectives and incorporating traditional teachings. Our office is on the unceded and ancestral territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh people.
