The Adinkrahene Project is a joint partnership between Wilfrid Laurier University and the AIDS Committee of Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and Area (ACCKWA), the project is interested in learning about how ACB people living in Waterloo Region feel about their health and their ability to get the quality of healthcare that they desire.
They are looking to work with African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) residents and community Leaders who live in Waterloo Region and who are 16 years and older.
This project focuses on access to health care for ACB people as well as their health in general, and not on one specific health issue. It is also concerned about access to community services designed specifically for ACB people and the ways that they prefer to be engaged by those services.
Focus groups and interviews will be used to identify the concerns that the ACB community has in relation to health care and community services in Waterloo Region.
