Migrant Farm Workers – Health, Sexual health and HIV/AIDS

If you didn’t know, ACAS has been teaming up with the AIDS Committee of Windsor, AIDS Niagara, Thai Society of Ontario, and Justicia for Migrant Workers on the Asian Migrant Farm Workers’ Health Promotion Project. Started in 2009, the time-limited project is tasked with HIV/STI/Hep C prevention education and outreach with Asian migrant farm workers in Ontario. To date, we’ve produced a few resources you should check out:
