World AIDS Day 2019
Annually, on December 1st, we commemorate World AIDS Day (WAD) and the start of Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week (AAAW).
This year, we reflect on the significant progress made to improve the lives of those living with HIV, but also recognize the work that still needs to be done to promote the U=U (Undetectable=Untransmittable) message and reduce HIV-related stigma.
This year’s theme highlights the strength that lies in communities and the important role they play in contributing to the HIV/AIDS response.
The evidence for U=U, holds tremendous power to reduce HIV related stigma and transform the lives of people living with HIV. To raise awareness of this important message, the Public Health Agency of Canada will be releasing a series of video testimonials featuring stories of five people living with HIV.
