Currently, youth represent over one quarter of all new HIV infections in Canada.
CANFAR is dedicated to preventing HIV through educating Canadian youth about HIV prevention, gender and sexual diversity, healthy relationships, harm reduction, and resilience.
One and All aims to actively engage youth in discussions about HIV, while providing them reliable and accurate information to ensure that the next generation of youth will have the tools to make safer, healthier, and more informed decisions.
We want to increase awareness and understanding of HIV among youth – one and all.
Youth Art Competition 2018
The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) is calling on youth under the age of 30 in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nunavut, PEI, and Yukon to participate in a national art competition with the goal of raising awareness of health services available to young Canadians.
Winners will receive a $1,000 award and their submission will be printed/displayed on CANFAR resources that provide information for health services for youth including mental health, addiction, and sexual health services.
One winning submission will be selected from each province and territory. Winners will be determined by a jury of international artists, many who have explored HIV in their work at some point in their careers.
