HIV/AIDS groups scramble for cash after federal transition funds dry up

 This article written by Beatrice Britneff from Global News talks about 40 community-based HIV/AIDS groups that were defunded and lost thousands of dollars each in annual funding including Bruce House and AIDS Saskatoon. The Canadian AIDS Society – Société canadienne du sida is one of them.

Neglecting programs dedicated to supporting those living with the virus is ‘’dangerous’’ according to our Executive Director Gary Lacasse because it will put more people at risk of contracting HIV: ‘’We have to have a holistic approach if we’re going to get to the numbers that we need to get by 2030, which is no more transmissions’’.
