Together, our fight can continue
Founded in 1986, The AIDS Network has been on the front line of the response to HIV in our communities for 35 years. Although HIV can affect anyone, the burden of the epidemic has always been unequal, and some of our friends and neighbours are more affected than others. We continue to lead efforts in in Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand, Norfolk and Brant to fight for dignity, equity and better health outcomes for people who are living with, affected by and disproportionately vulnerable to HIV, supporting queer and trans communities, Black, Indigenous and racialized communities, people who use drugs and women at higher risk. Now, as the ravages of the pandemic have disrupted our efforts, we expect to see rates of HIV and hepatitis C rise. Coupled with the ever-worsening opioid overdose catastrophe in Ontario, our fight is far from over. We believe that through holistic supportive services rooted in client-centered and harm-reduction philosophy, folks who bear a disproportionate burden of these epidemics can not just survive, but thrive. But we need your help now more than ever to get there.
Our efforts have always relied on the generous support of our friends and supporters in the communities we serve, and we need your help. Together, our fight can continue. Please give generously, and show your support today.
