Ensuring that people living with HIV/AIDS have access to the HIV treatment therapy of their choice is one of CAS’ key missions. To this end, CAS has been actively involved in research focused on advancing Canada’s Medical Marihuana Access and facilitating access to cannabis as therapy.
The full report, “Cannabis as Therapy for People Living with HIV/AIDS: Our Right, Our Choice” and accompanying executive summary outline the barriers to access to the federal medical cannabis program, to a legal source of cannabis, and to adequate information and services. Recommendations are made to address these barriers so that people living with HIV/AIDS can treat themselves without fear of criminal prosecution, with a legal, safe and affordable source of cannabis, with adequate information to make informed decisions and with the necessary support to optimize their health.
