Safer Consumption Supplies


HIV Community Link is continuing to provide services in Calgary and Medicine Hat. While our office doors are closed temporarily, we are actively providing support by phone and through outreach. We are working on developing new ways to offer some of our services, such as online education and delivery services to our registered clients. For updated information, visit our COVID-19 Update Page

HIV Community Link is one of 7 organizations that distribute consumption supplies in the province of Alberta. We use a harm reduction approach to reduce the risks associated with behaviours such as drug use. Our Medicine Hat Office provides safer consumption supplies, such as new needles and pipes, as well as other harm reduction supplies related to safer drug use.
