Guiding Principles

We understand that with the changing nature of HIV/AIDS, agency personnel and AIDS-impacted communities are relating to an illness associated with unpredictability, uncertainty and anticipatory grief, in addition to the pre-existing legacy of multiple losses.

We believe that our work must be:

  • Grounded in solid theory
  • Shaped by the experience of the people we work with
  • Linked to people’s broader life experiences
  • Framed within a context of equity and inclusion
  • Trusting of everyone’s unique capacity to survive, thrive and make meaning

The AIDS Bereavement and Resiliency Program has a Facilitation Team and a Provincial Advisory Committee. The Team is headed by Director, Thomas Egdorf.
