The Ontario Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Strategy was implemented in 1995 and has consistently evolved since then to respond to the changing epidemic within the Aboriginal population. The Strategy has embraced two fundamental principles since its inception. The first being a recognition that OAHAS is a distinct strategy based on the distinct needs of Aboriginal people.
While issues and factors related to the disease may be similar to the mainstream population, Aboriginal differences must be respected. This principle is embodied in the Two Row Wampum Treaty of the Haudenosaunee people.
Oasah has a variety of services within urban populations including education and training. Oahas staff will work with community members and families to access the basic needs for optimal health, including income, housing, food, employment and positive working conditions as well as providing safer sex and harm reduction supplies within the community.
