Puzzled about PrEP?

Many of us are curious about PrEP. While some guys in our communities are using PrEP, some of us are puzzled and want to learn more about what it is, how it works, and what it means for ourselves and our communities. AIDS Vancouver, Health Initiative for Men (HIM) and YouthCO are teaming up to host an opportunity to talk more about PrEP. Come and meet people in our community who are in the know when it comes to PrEP, including someone who has been helping people get access to these meds.

To learn more about PrEP and see YouthCO's position paper, visit us at www.youthco.org/prep.

Will you come?

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
