Canada Needs a New Game Plan to Eradicate HIV

This blog by Laurie Edmiston first appeared on Huffington Post here.

The world got some inspiring news at last summer's International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia: UNAIDS said we are positioned to see the end of the HIV epidemic by 2030. To achieve this goal, it proposed that by 2020, 90 per cent of people living with HIV globally should be diagnosed. Ninety per cent of those diagnosed should be receiving treatment, and 90 per cent of those on treatment should have a significantly reduced amount of virus in their blood, greatly improving the health of people living with HIV and reducing the risk of transmission.

Women Living With HIV Aim to Break the Glass Ceiling

This blog by Allison Carter first appeared on Huffington Post here.

More than half of all people living with HIV worldwide are women, and yet they continue to be under-represented in the HIV response. A recent Canadian study of women living with HIV aims to break this glass ceiling, shedding important light on what opportunities exist and what barriers persist towards closing the gap for women living with HIV, a highly underserved community both in Canada and around the world.

Let's Close the Access Gap in the Struggle Against AIDS

This blog by Claire Holloway Wadhwani first appeared on Huffington Post here.

World AIDS Day: a time for us to celebrate the amazing progress being made in the global struggle against HIV/AIDS and a time to reflect on what could be done better.

This year there is much cause to celebrate. Great advances are being made in new treatment as prevention options and, thanks to global partnerships, affordable treatment is available to more communities than ever before.

Still, there are people being left behind.
