Nova Scotia Advisory Commission on AIDS


 


World AIDS Day

HIV/AIDS Awareness Week (24 November to 1 December) and World AIDS Day (1 December), which also launches Indigenous AIDS Awareness Week (1 to 7 December) in Canada, is a time to honour all who are affected by and the millions of people who have lost their lives to HIV infection.

The 2022 international theme is Equalize. UNAIDS urges us all to address the inequalities and inequities that prevent us in ending the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. This underscores the urgency to address inequities in prevention, testing, diagnosis, and care to stop new infections and ensure everyone with HIV infection has access to treatment and support.
