Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week

By Merv Thomas

The 2017 Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week (AAAW) on the first week of December will be launched in Ottawa with Elders, Indigenous and government leaders, cultural sharing, and presentations from Indigenous people living with HIV and AIDS. The week will include a variety of events and gatherings across Canada to raise awareness and provide information on the impact of HIV and AIDS on our communities and inspiring resilient responses.

The 2017 AAAW will be planned beginning in August by the AAAW Steering Committee, which includes CAAN staff, board members, APHAs, Indigenous people living with HIV and AIDS, Aboriginal AIDS service organizations and other partner organizations. Metis, Inuit and First Nations will be represented throughout the AAAW planning and campaign. The campaign will include social media content, posters, and a special edition CAAN Newsletter.

If you’re interested in being involved or hosting an event, please contact Merv Thomas, mervt@caan.ca
