Indigenous Right to Equitable Health Without Discrimination or Stigma

The Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network announces Indigenous leadership and their supporters will gather on November 30, 2017 in Ottawa, ON to launch Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week 2017. It will be followed December 1 – 6, 2017 by 12 events across the country (Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Iqaluit, Toronto, and more) to unite an Indigenous response to HIV and AIDS in a parallel theme to international World AIDS Day: My Health, My Right.

This series of events across Canada will connect Indigenous organizations, government
 partners, health care providers, and community leaders as they reflect on what has been achieved to obtain their right to health: by testing to “know your status”, eliminating stigma and discrimination, and ensuring equitable access.
