This report provides findings from a community-based, multi-phased assessment of the needs and assets of Canadian AIDS Society (CAS) member organizations with respect to providing services for people who use substances. The assessment sought to identify, from the perspective of service providers, what proved effective and what proved challenging within Canadian AIDS service organizations (ASOs). The current research is a followup to a study undertaken by CAS and The Canadian Harm Reduction Network entitled Learning from Each Other: Enhancing Community-Based Harm Reduction Programs and Practices in Canada, which explored harm reduction services from the perspective of service users. It is our hope that current study findings will enrich the practice of harm reduction in Canada by sharing the successes and lessons of experienced practitioners in the field. As well, we endeavour to use the perspectives gathered here to shape CAS’ work in support of its member organizations thereby enhancing their capacity to provide services to people who use substances.
