THN Special Update COVID-19
May 1, 2020
These THN COVID-19 Updates are being distributed in response to the rapidly evolving circumstances around the coronavirus. We know how important it is that people living with and affected by HIV have access to important services while organizations balance health safety requirements related to this situation. We also understand that our clients and communities are likely to have higher risk of exposure and more significant health impacts for a variety of reasons.
These Updates are intended to consolidate and simplify information sharing and to provide:
  • key links to current and evidence-based information, recommendations and tools
  • updates on any HIV related changes to programming, restrictions on access to organizations’ space, restrictions on staff participation in external mtgs.
Key sources of information for ongoing updates include:

Government & Policy HIV Related Community Provider Harm Reduction
