Medicine Bundle

Sex is sacred. You can now request your free Medicine Bundle that includes an HIV self-test kit.

This program was made by and for the Two-Spirit, queer, and trans Indigenous community with the goal of creating alternate pathways to testing and sexual health resources.

What is a Medicine Bundle?

A Medicine Bundle is personal to its carrier and contains items you have gathered and that you care for. This bundle is sacred to you. It contains items that support you in your personal journey and development. The Medicine Bundle helps you engage with your health in a holistic way – mind, body, spirit, and sex.

What is our sexual health Medicine Bundle?

This Medicine Bundle contains an HIV self-test kit, Indigenous medicines (sage, sweetgrass, tobacco, cedar, lavender, Labrador tea, bear grease and Devil’s club salve), sexual health supplies, and additional resources. The purpose of this bundle is to bring the sacredness back into sex and give you access to a holistic approach to your sexual health needs.

Who is the program for?

To be eligible to receive a Medicine Bundle, you must:

  • Identify as Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, Inuit)
  • Be a resident of what is colonially referred to as British Columbia

What do you need to do?

You will answer a few questions about yourself and order a Medicine Bundle that will be shipped to an address of your choosing. If there are barriers or concerns about shipping, a member of the Two-Spirit Program team will be in touch to discuss options. After you use the Medicine Bundle, we will send you another set of questions to help us understand your experience and how we can better improve the program.
