Abstract Quebec has the highest rate in Canada of AIDS among injection drug users (IDU), women and individuals originating from Model II countries. Long-term prevention of HIV transmission in Quebec calls for intervention measures (individual risk reduction) as well as the implementation of health promotion strategies. A rigorous conceptual framework like the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion allows us to better identify relevant measures to be developed in order to curb the HIV epidemic in the province of Quebec.
