Ideas on how to support Island Sexual Health
2014 March 21
We are thrilled, overwhelmed, and greatly humbled by the offers of support for our organization and the wellness of our clients. As an organization, we have been doing everything we can to sustain our services and are committed to doing so. Many of you have been asking how you can offer support. We recognize the genius and strength that lies within our community and welcome any suggestions of help!
Here are some ways to help us:
Letters of Support
Please send letters of support and a call to action to the Ministry of Health as well as Island Health Authority and indicate that sexual health services are essential health services that our citizens have a right to access confidential and competent care without barriers.
