To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

Whereas preventative sexual health programs pay for themselves through money-saved in addition to enhanced health and well-being; and

Whereas the efficiency of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) in preventing the spread of HIV is well-established;

Whereas many Ontarians did not receive the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in school and are forced to pay out of pocket to receive it later in life;

Whereas other Canadian jurisdictions such as British Columbia’s New Democratic provincial government already are fighting cancer by freely providing sexual health measures such as take home cervical cancer test kits; 

Whereas safe and effective vaccines exist for other sexually-transmitted infections such as hepatitis A, B, and C, which primarily spread in communities facing marginalization;

Whereas expanding coverage of sexual health services under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) will promote public health and protect marginalized communities;

 

 

Will you sign?

We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario and call on the Minister of Health to urgently:

  1. Expand the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) to cover pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) for HIV prevention;
  2. Include coverage for the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine at any age when recommended by a doctor;
  3. Provide coverage for other vaccines related to sexually transmitted infections; and
  4. Include take-home cervical cancer test kits as part of OHIP-covered services.
