Street Con­nec­tions is a mobile pub­lic health ser­vice in Winnipeg.

Our goal is to reduce the spread of sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted and blood-borne infec­tions (STB­BIs), includ­ing hepati­tis C and HIV, and reduce oth­er drug-relat­ed harms. 

We are part of Healthy Sex­u­al­i­ty and Harm Reduc­tion in the Win­nipeg Health Authority’s (WRHA) Pop­u­la­tion and Pub­lic Health Program.

Pub­lic health nurs­es and out­reach work­ers staff our van. We dri­ve around the city every evening except Sun­day. You can also find us dur­ing the day from Mon­day to Fri­day in our office on the main floor of 496 Har­grave St.

We fol­low a harm reduc­tion phi­los­o­phy. This means that we sup­port peo­ple who use drugs in their efforts to keep them­selves and their com­mu­ni­ty safe. We do not judge peo­ple for their sex­u­al and drug use practices. 

The office locat­ed on the main floor at 496 Har­grave is open Mon­day to Fri­day from 8:30 – 4:30.

The van is out:
