Canada’s New Government Must Take Action on HIV

Toronto, November 30, 2015 — In a briefing paper released to parliamentarians in advance of World AIDS Day (December 1), the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network is calling on the new federal government to take decisive steps to address the HIV epidemic, both in Canada and abroad. Laying out five key areas and recommending associated actions, the document enjoins Canada’s government to heed research and evidence, and uphold a human rights-based approach to HIV-related policy-making — including following through on several commitments made during the recent federal election.
