Welcome to GAAP

The Gendering Adolescent AIDS Prevention (GAAP) project at the University of Toronto is a collaboration between researchers, students and community members across fields, universities and countries united in the pursuit of community-based sexual health research. GAAP brings together youth, community based service providers, policy makers, students and researchers on projects that use arts-based and participatory approaches to working with young people in relation to sexuality, HIV prevention and AIDS awareness.  Our overall goal is the creation of innovative, gender-sensitive, and equity-based HIV and sexual health  research, education and community-university initiatives that involve youth.
