CANFAR is pleased to announce the publication of the Annual Report 2018/2019.
CANFAR has been a trailblazer in its mission to eradicate HIV/AIDS in Canada since its inception in 1987. Thanks to the generous and dedicated support received from our donors, CANFAR has invested more than $22 million in close to 500 research projects across Canada. We have had many successes to date – HIV is now a widely treatable infection and people with HIV are living long and healthy lives.
However, unlike other developed nations where HIV is on the wane, the number of new infections continues to increase year over year in Canada. Addressing this reality is now central to CANFAR’s strategy and focus.
This has been another rewarding year of exciting initiatives that are yielding significant results. As you flip through the pages of this Annual Report, we hope you will be as inspired and proud of our many accomplishments as we are.
