Sask Stories was a community-driven website and resource development project designed to honour and connect the many programs, projects and initiatives delivered across Saskatchewan to reduce the burdens of HIV and HCV within the province. The aim was to build a database of published and unpublished HIV and HCV programs, projects and initiatives to facilitate knowledge exchange, collaborations and partnerships. Sask Stories also aimed to support community to create evidence-based PPIs and related programming and research proposals.
Sask Stories created a series of learning modules that cover and highlight wise and promising practices among HIV and HCV initiatives throughout the provinces, like the Know Your Status program, for example. The learning modules cover the key areas of prevention, testing and linkage to care and could also act as a road map for future program development in Saskatchewan.
Modules also cover Indigenous ways of knowing and being, as well as guidance to utilizing the resources on the Sask Stories website and what could be accomplished with the information, such as writing grant proposals.
Sask Stories was a five-year project funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Community Action Fund in the amount of $863,000.
