The Community Road Map was created as a guide to ensure that U=U messaging reaches historically unreached communities by using community expertise to inform the production of materials or modules. 

In Calgary, AB, on March 12-13, 2024, the Canadian AIDS Society brought together 86 experts living with HIV and newly diagnosed people to discuss the intersections and complexities faced by populations most affected by HIV. Our intent is to ensure that information about U=U is relevant and disseminated where it is most needed. 



The Canadian AIDS Society knows people living with HIV/AIDS are the experts in what they need. In response, we are strengthening our sector by building an accessible education resource for employers who understand that this community must meaningfully lead and animate their own programming. 

Known as HIV Connect, this training program will be a 4-part series designed for community and clinical service providers looking to enhance their workforces by recruiting, lifting and retaining people living with HIV/AIDS. This multi-year project is led by a voluntary Steering Committee of people living with HIV and informed by years of community consultation work across Canada. 

By creating networks based on priority populations, determinants of health or health inequities such as homelessness, substance use or newcomer communities, it allows organizations to connect on a more meaningful level. When using a structure for networks such as provinces or regions, it creates a large focus that can be meaningful for some and not for others. 

These networks will provide an opportunity to share meaningful practices or programs from your organizations. CAS will provide an analysis of potential or current meaningful strategies at the following meeting. Gather information that can be used to form campaigns. 

The Positive Treatment Guide, provided by the Canadian AIDS Society (CAS), is a comprehensive resource designed to support people living with HIV/AIDS in Canada. It offers guidance on patient rights, treatment options, and strategies for engaging effectively with healthcare providers. The guide aims to empower individuals by providing detailed information on various treatments, including traditional and alternative medicines, and promoting informed decision-making regarding their health.

The Canadian AIDS Society was published in Open Access Government, a digital publication that touches on public policy issues around the world. CAS’s article discussed the dramatic increase in new HIV infections across Canada over the past several years, and how we can move forward.
