A Strategic Plan sets the broad framework of goals and priorities for an organization. ICAD is currently working under the guidance of a Strategic Plan for the period 2014-2017:
1. Through engagement with its membership, ICAD takes a lead role in identifying strategies for ending the pandemic.
2. Integrate HIV with other development and health initiatives in Canada and internationally through policy analysis, research, and promotion of relevant programs and policies.
3. Link the international and domestic responses by addressing the underlying vulnerablities that are common among most-affected populations in Canada and in other settings (in the Global North and Global South).
