Sexual health youth forum this weekend

African, Caribbean and Black youth (ACBY) from Windsor and Essex County are being invited to take part in a research project that aims to establish a profile of the experiences that make them vulnerable to negative sexual health outcomes and develop a strategy to address them.

The ACBY project, funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, is a three-year collaboration among UWindsor researchers who have studied  the HIV epidemic since its inception, an emerging generation of new researchers and community partners from the AIDS Committee of Windsor and the Youth Connection Association. More than 60 leaders from the African, Caribbean and Black communities pledged their support for the project following a September 6 ACB community meeting.

Young people from the ACBY community are invited to attend a forum this Saturday, September 29, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Sandwich Teen Action Group, 3735 King Street, Windsor to learn about the project and how they can become involved in helping to lead it.
