On December 1st, people around the world unite in solidarity for World AIDS Day.
Annually, this date marks an important opportunity to collectively remember those we have lost due to AIDS-related illnesses, and to show support for those who continue to be affected by HIV and AIDS.
Voices for World AIDS Day, formerly Voices for Hope, began 14 years ago and is the largest HIV collaborative initiative in Canada marking AIDS Awareness Week and World AIDS Day.
Voices for World AIDS Day is led by CANFAR, Casey House, Maison du Parc, and the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. The initiative aims to increase national partnership-building among a network of AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) across the country to raise awareness of HIV and the work being done in the areas of HIV prevention, testing, access to treatment, and stigma reduction.
The collective aim of Voices for World AIDS Day is to educate the public about the important issues around HIV, support people living with HIV and AIDS, and advocate for essential services to end the HIV epidemic in Canada.
