GoFundMe: Help us keep the memory alive of those we’ve lost to AIDS by supporting the Canadian AIDS Memorial Quilts project! - The Canadian AIDS Memorial Quilt serves as a living memory of the almost 25,000 Canadians who have died of AIDS-related causes. In the beginning of the AIDS crisis many people who died of AIDS-related causes did not receive funerals—due to both the social stigma of AIDS and the outright refusal by many funeral homes and cemeteries to handle the remains of the deceased. Lacking a memorial service or grave site, the Memorial Quilt was often the only opportunity survivors had to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones. In 2013 the collection was brought under the care of…

Canadian AIDS Society’s response to Government of Canada’s STBBI Action Plan - On July 17, 2019, the Government of Canada published an action plan entitled, “Accelerating our response: Government of Canada five-year action plan on sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections”. While this Action Plan is a much needed step in the right direction toward addressing the drastically increasing rates of sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI) in Canada, there are some significant gaps of concern. Firstly, the Canadian AIDS Society (CAS) would like to express support for the priorities and over-arching themes of the Action Plan. The seven broad Action Plan priorities are: Moving towards truth and reconciliation with First Nations, Inuit…
Second annual national HIV Testing Day taking place this June in Canada - Second annual national HIV Testing Day taking place this June in Canada 2018 event resulted in 835 Canadians being tested for HIV OTTAWA, May 21, 2019 – The national HIV Testing Day event organized by the Canadian AIDS Society (CAS), community-based organizations and local health authorities across Canada will be returning this year on June 27th with testing events happening at various times at local testing sites in 70 communities across the country. ‘’Building on the success of last year, this event is truly about normalizing HIV testing, increasing Canadians’ capacity to make informed decisions regarding their own sexual health,…
Analysis of Canada’s 2017 HIV Surveillance Report - In December of 2018, researchers from the Public Health Agency of Canada released the 2017 HIV Surveillance Report. In the Canadian Communicable Disease Report (CCDR) article, the researchers downplay the impact of rising HIV rates, and indeed even downplay the existence of such an increase. Canada’s HIV response needs to be strengthened to address these realities, and not be allowed to languish in an atmosphere of complacency. The fight against HIV is not over, and we cannot be complacent when an average of 6.6 new HIV diagnoses are given daily. Number of new infections In perhaps the most incongruous interpretation…

Position Statement: Undetectable Equals Untransmittable - U = U (Undetectable Equals Untransmittable) Not since the introduction of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) in 1996 has there been as significant a milestone as U=U (Undetectable Equals Untransmittable). Ever since Swiss HIV experts produced the first-ever consensus statement in 2008 to say that HIV-positive individuals on effective antiretroviral therapy are sexually non-infectious, CAS has been noting study after study re-iterating the facts surrounding U=U. Endorsed by CAS since with great pride since December 1st, we consider U=U to be a definite game changer because: Once viral suppression has been achieved and maintained for six months, the person living with HIV can…
