The Wood Buffalo HIV/AIDS Society aims to promote public awareness and understanding of HIV/AIDS without prejudice; thus encouraging and involving the community in prevention strategies and supporting people infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS. They are located in Fort McMurray and do incredible outreach work. In fact it is this outreach and promotion that they are officially unveiling a new branch of the organization called the Fort McMurray Health Promotions Centre.
Laconic is extremely pleased with the WBHAS and plan on developing a strong relationship and work on some exciting projects in the near future besides developing a brand new website which will be launched in Q3 of 2009.
The Wood Buffalo HIV & AIDS Society is volunteer driven and relies on the contributions of volunteers. Their Board of Directors consists of local volunteers who assist in program delivery, special events and fundraising. Individuals from all walks of life are welcome to participate in our volunteer program, if you are in the Fort McMurray area and would like to volunteer, feel free to visit their current website. I’m sure they would be appreciative.
