Black CAP is an organization that works to reduce HIV/AIDS in Toronto’s Black, African and Caribbean communities and enhance the quality of life of Black people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS is spreading quickly in Toronto’s Black communities and we believe that our work is more important than ever. At this time, Black, African and Caribbean people account for more than one-fifth of all new HIV infections in Toronto, in the early nineties we made up only one-tenth of new HIV infections. Issues of HIV related stigma and discrimination, homophobia, anti-Black racism, immigration, poverty, and barriers to social inclusion also continue to make our work harder.
Black CAP provides a wide range of free, confidential supportive and practical services to men, women, youth and children living with HIV/AIDS. We also offer support to their friends, partners, family and caregivers, and to those at risk for HIV infection. We also work with LGBT communities to address the challenges and barriers they experience in our community.
