Street Youth Video Project

The main goal of the STI/HIV Research Program is to engage in research activites that will impact the prevention, control or elimination of sexually transmitted infections.

​​The division of STI/HIV Prevention and Control collaborated with the Public Health Agency of Canada on a research study aimed at exploring issues in the life of street youth that contribute to the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections including AIDS. 

Once the study was over, the research team engaged the youth to develop video clips that help tell the youth’s stories around sexual risk while living on the street and some of the research findings. 

The script and artwork were created by the youth themselves with the help of a local film agency.
