CANFAR is the only organization in Canada with the sole purpose of independently funding AIDS research.

We are fortunate that Canada is home to some of the top HIV doctors and researchers in the world. With your support, you'll enable our heroes in white coats to continue their search for our AIDS-free future.

Awareness & Prevention Programs

Prevention is absolutely critical to ending HIV and AIDS.

At CANFAR, we believe that if Canadians are empowered, they will act, and that action will ripple across the world. Our awareness and prevention programs aim to empower Canadians with the tools they need to make exponential progress in the global AIDS response.


Events are a fun and easy way to raise funds for lifesaving research.

CANFAR events, which range from small cocktail receptions to national galas, play a critically important role in raising funds for our programs and building HIV and AIDS awareness.

As my life was hanging by a thread, a CANFAR-funded researcher, Dr. Mark Wainberg, discovered an antiviral drug called 3TC, and within two weeks of taking this new drug, I was back on my feet. It was a miracle.
