About Us

OUR STORY

For over two decades, Moyo (previously known as Peel HIV/AIDS Network) has provided a growing array of health promotion, education, social and support services for people living with, affected by, and at systemic risk of HIV. Through collaborative efforts and effective service delivery, Moyo has become the leading HIV/AIDS service provider for Peel’s communities of Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.

Our History

In 1991, three public health nurses identified a gap in HIV/AIDS counseling services in Peel. A needs assessment was conducted involving health workers, agencies and affected community members and, as a result, an information-sharing network emerged.

By 1992, the Ontario Ministry of Health announced funding for community-based AIDS projects and the Peel HIV/AIDS Network (PHAN) was born. Incorporated in 1993, PHAN directors developed a mission statement and hired the first Executive Director to coordinate services, created HIV/AIDS awareness in Peel and referred clients to  appropriate services.
