On June 21st, 2019, at Nickel Days Fair Grounds from 4:00 to 10:00 pm, nurses from the Northern Health Region in partnership with Safer Choices Northern Network, KTC and Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) will be offering testing for sexually transmitted & blood bourne infections as well as offering harm reduction information and supplies.

Pre- and post-test counselling will be provided to all participants to help determine their risk factors. If a participant tests positive for HIV or another STBBI, staff from the Northern Health Region will be able to form a long-term relationship with the individual and work toward ensuring their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
