Sask Polytech, Prairie Harm Reduction, SASWH collaborate on health research project


Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Prairie Harm Reduction, and Saskatchewan Association for Safe Workplaces have received $1.4M in funding from the Government of Canada to address the discrimination and stigma faced by people who use substances and seek assistance from frontline health workers. The five-year project will develop and distribute resources and training for care providers in order to strengthen their capacity to provide culturally safe and stigma-free prevention, testing, treatment, and care. The resources will also be used to train employed health care workers and students preparing for a future career in the sector.
