World AIDS Day takes place on December 1st each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day. It is estimated that 37.9 million people are living with HIV around the world, and 63,100 people here in Canada, and 6 Canadians are infected with HIV everyday.

The AIDS Committee of Ottawa is organizing and hosting educational and awareness-raising events throughout the entire AIDS Awareness Week from Nov. 24th to Dec. 1st.

COVID-19 is showing once again how health is interlinked with other critical issues, such as reducing inequality, human rights, gender equality, social protection and economic growth. With this in mind, this year the theme of World AIDS Day is “Global solidarity, shared responsibility”.

Please see our line-up of events and join us in raising awareness in our community and across our city.
