AIDS Program South Saskatchewan

  1. Needle Pick Up
    Discarded needles are a health concern in our community. AIDS Program South Saskatchewan is looking for a technology enabled solution for the community to alert them of the GPS location and any other details of the needles are discarded and a system that allows them to look at the history of reported needles.

  2. Needle Exchange Database
    AIDS Program South Saskatchewan’s Needle Exchange Program sees more than 150 people per day to exchange needles, inhalation pipes, and drug supplies. As they are a confidential anonymous service, they only require limited information from their clients. Their existing system, TrackVia, has difficulties managing duplicates, handling poor internet connection and doesn’t allow for extra details required for reporting. They are looking for an application that allows for anonymous data entry, offline experience and provides a method to report.

  3. Education Resources
    AIDS Program South Saskatchewan cover HIV/HCV/STI education in Regina and Southern Saskatchewan to schools, universities, community organizations, and reserves. However, they are aiming to extend their reach through education that doesn't have our coordinator driving across the province. They are looking for an online application that allows for educational resources to be posted and for individuals to take pre and post educational test.
