The Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) is a registered Canadian charity based in Ottawa, Ontario representing a large coalition of over 100 Canadian HIV and AIDS organizations, international development non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, labour unions, and individuals. ICAD was founded in 1989 as a working group of the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC) with the mandate to bring together AIDS service organizations and international development organizations to address the HIV crisis at home and abroad. ICAD helps Canadians contribute to international HIV work and encourages Canadian organizations to use the lessons learned from the global response that ICAD makes available, to improve prevention, care, treatment and support services across diverse settings in Canada. ICAD provides leadership in reducing the global and domestic impact of the HIV and AIDS epidemic through improving public policy, providing information and analysis, and sharing lessons learned.
About the Southern African Nutrition Initiative (SANI) Twinning Project
As part of CARE Canada’s Southern African Nutrition Initiative (SANI) funded by the Government of Canada, the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) led a capacity-building twinning initiative to improve the health outcomes of women living with HIV and children living with and/or affected by HIV in targeted regions of Malawi and Zambia. Small grants were awarded to selected organizations to implement two-year community projects that focused on gender, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), HIV and nutrition/food security.
