August 1, 2014 — We are deeply saddened by the death of our friend and colleague Elisse Zack, founding Executive Director of the Canadian Working Group on HIV and Rehabilitation (CWGHR). Elisse passed away peacefully in Toronto on the evening of Thursday, July 31.
Individuals claiming to work for "ICAD Kenya" have allegedly been attempting to raise funds in Kenya. They have also used Facebook to create an appearance of being affiliated with us. ICAD has no offices anywhere in developing countries, nor do we raise funds from individuals or NGOs in any developing country.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Canada announces renewed commitment to maternal and child health
May 30, Toronto, Ottawa, CANADA – The Government of Canada's commitment of another 3.5 billion dollars (CAD) over the next five years (2015-2020) to improve the health of mothers and children in the global South is welcomed and applauded by the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) and the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD). The funding builds on a program known as the "Muskoka Initiative" that was launched in 2010 to address the significant gaps that exist in maternal, newborn, and child health in low-income countries.
