Canadian Positive People Network (CPPN)
Réseau canadien des personnes séropositives (RCPS)
World AIDS Day 2022
"The global HIV response is in danger, even as HIV remains a major public health issue that affects millions of people worldwide. Over the last few years progress towards HIV goals has stalled, resources have shrunk, and millions of lives are at risk as a result."
This year, the World Health Organization has issued several "Calls to Action".
The CPPN echoes each of these "Calls" specifically as they relate to Canada's domestic response to HIV and HIV co-infections.
The "Calls to Action" included below are examples. Click here for more information.
For health workers: Deliver care that is kind, respectful of human rights and without stigma.
For health ministries and public health leaders: Allocate sufficient resources improve the quality of HIV services and make them more resilient and sustainable.
For civil society: Speak out against stigma and discrimination.
For community leaders: Combat stigma and discrimination to ensure that everyone feels safe to access HIV services.
The World Health Organization did NOT issue a Call to Action for people living with HIV and HIV co-infections.
The CPPN calls upon all people living with HIV and HIV co-infections to demand that every organized effort to address HIV and HIV co-infections, in Canada and around the globe, "Equalize" to ensure and insist upon the
Greater Involvement and Meaningful Engagement of all persons living with HIV and HIV co-infections.
