HIV Community Link withdraws plan for 13 Street N. harm reduction site

By Lethbridge Herald on February 18, 2021.

HIV Community Link will not be setting up at harm reduction site on 13th Street North as previously planned.
HIV Community Link issued the following statement on Thursday regarding the location they had been seeking for a potential harm reduction site at 422 13th Street North:
“HIV Community Link announces that the space on 13th Street North, where we initially planned to offer safe and confidential services to Lethbridge residents, is no longer a viable option. At this time, HIV Community Link and the landlord will be parting ways professionally and amicably. We want to publicly thank those who support our work and the vulnerable residents we serve. Our team is committed to working with the community to form a collaborative response to rising rates of hepatitis C, HIV, and STBBI in Alberta, and we will continue to look for a suitable location. Please get in touch at info@hivcl.org if you are interested in supporting these efforts.”
“Building on a 37-year legacy, HIV Community Link’s programs focus on prevention, education, and support. Our organization is dedicated to offering wraparound services to achieve long-term health outcomes for people living with or at risk of hepatitis C, HIV, and other sexually transmissible and blood-borne infections.”
