The Hope2Health Project

The Hope2Health project is an initiative of the Ending Violence Association of BC (EVA BC). The project is generously funded by Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) Canada.

The project goal is to strengthen and develop partnerships between anti-violence and health sectors to enhance cross-sector collaboration and action on sexual assault in British Columbia.

The Hope2Health Hub is a provincial resource for healthcare professionals and community-based sexual assault service providers. The goal of the Hub is to enhance knowledge and best practices by addressing gaps in sexual assault services and connecting service providers.
