Our annual Condom Couture Fashion Fundraiser is coming up on November 27, 2015!! ARCHES (formerly Lethbridge HIV Connection) in partnership with Club Didi and the Lethbridge College Fashion Design and Sustainability Program are preparing for their second annual Condom Couture Fashion Show fundraising event. We are excited to announce that we will be holding this years show at the Italian Canadian Club on November 27, 2015. Doors open at 7:00pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. The event is a lighthearted approach to educating our community about the very serious issues of HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Take into consideration these facts: The number of people living with HIV in Canada is increasing 25% of people living with HIV are unaware that they are HIV positive Every 3 hours a person in Canada is infected with HIV Simply practicing safe sex by using a condom every time will drastically decrease transmission rates of HIV and other STIs. ARCHES works to educate people and the Condom Couture Fashion Show; featuring outfits containing condoms as a design material and elements helps make this point. The event is attended by people that want to enjoy a fun evening of fashion and entertainment in support of ARCHES and the important programming that we do in our community. We are very excited about this great event that we hope will successfully assist us in raising funds to support our programming, spread awareness about HIV and help educate the public about prevention.

Take Home Naloxone Program!!

Take Home Naloxone Program!!

Sep 9, 2015

http://lethbridgeherald.com/news/local-news/2015/06/08/new-weapon-arriving-to-combat-opioid-overdoses/ Melissa Villeneuve Lethbridge Herald [email protected] New ammunition in the fight against opioid overdoses will soon arrive in Lethbridge. The Lethbridge HIV Connection has been chosen as one of eight agencies in the province to distribute take-home naloxone kits, a drug which can be injected to counter the effects of opioids such as fentanyl, oxycodone, morphine, or heroin. The kits are expected to arrive in July. A nurse practitioner will provide education, prescribe and dispense the kits to those who currently use, or have a history of using, opiates. “We have been experiencing a dramatic rise in accidental overdose deaths in all of Alberta, but specifically in southern Alberta over the last few months,” said Stacey Bourque, Executive Director of Lethbridge HIV Connection. “The province recognized numbers are climbing, and that they needed to respond to the situation. At this point in time, overdose deaths are now higher than car accident deaths in the province.” Each kit contains two doses of naloxone, syringes, alcohol swabs, gloves, a rescue breathing mask, and instructions. The kits are free of charge to clients. Family members may attend the clinic to receive training in prevention and response. Bourque said the top opioids used in Lethbridge are fentanyl, or the illegally-produced “Oxy 80,” heroin, and prescription drugs. Fentanyl has been linked to more than 100 deaths in Alberta last year, including at least 10 on the Blood Tribe reserve. Usually prescribed for post-surgical or severe chronic pain, the drug is known to slow breathing. In an overdose, breathing can slow to one breath every 10 seconds, until it stops completely. Although the naloxone reverses the opioid effect, Bourque said they still encourage users to call 911 in the event of an overdose. “It’s a window of time. It buys people time to get some medical attention. Because the overdose could return, there are two vials in each kit. Users that have these kits, it’s quite empowering for them.” The Lethbridge HIV Connection has three satellite sites within the city. Bourque said this allows them to have a good connection with the users in the community, to ensure they get the help they need. “These kits will save lives,” said...
