Youth are a key population identified in The Federal Initiative to Address HIV/AIDS in Canada. Youth are also disproportionately affected by certain sexually transmitted infections, including chlamydia and gonorrhea. The status report presents current Canadian information about the impact of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted and blood borne infections among youth in Canada. The seven chapters of this report include a demographic profile of the population; epidemiological data about HIV/AIDS and other STBBIs among youth; information on the social, economic and cultural factors that increase this population’s vulnerability to, and resilience against, HIV and other STBBIs; an outline of recent Canadian research; and a discussion of recent programmatic response initiatives.
This report is intended for individuals involved in the development of policy, programs and research activities addressing STBBIs among this population.
