Indigenous Communities Make the Difference

The Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN) announces Indigenous leadership and their supporters will celebrate the 21st Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week December 1 – 6, 2019. It will launch in Ottawa, ON with a Parliamentary Tea followed by events across the country (Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and more) to unite an Indigenous response to HIV and AIDS mirroring the World AIDS Day theme ‘Communities Make the Difference’.

This series of nationwide events connect Indigenous organizations and leadership, government
 partners, community health workers, and grass roots activists to raise awareness on the critical role of community to inform culturally safe approaches to wholistic HIV testing, care and treatment. It will also address the barriers that stop communities from delivering essential services.
