What is World AIDS Day? It is a time when we pause to celebrate community, our diversity, and our shared progress in the global fight against HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). It is a time when we stand in solidarity with people who are living with and affected by HIV, and a time when we commemorate those who we have lost in the fight. It is a time when we raise our collective voice even louder to call out, push back, and dispel the stubborn and ever-persistent myths, misperceptions and stigma that create the walls and lay the conditions driving HIV infection rates across Canada and around the world.
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.

Global Fund: World AIDS Day 2013
World AIDS Campaign: Calling African and World Leaders to #bethegeneration to End AIDS, TB and Malaria
The Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) is seeking a dynamic and experienced Finance Officer to join a small staff team in Ottawa, Ontario. The Finance Officer is responsible for maintaining financial, accounting, and some administrative and personnel services in accordance with Canadian accounting standards for the not-for-profit sector.
The Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development's (ICAD) strategic plan was designed to provide the organization with a strategic framework for the 2010-2013 period. There have been many bio-medical, socio-economic and political changes in the HIV and development fields since the writing of the Coalition's last strategic plan, including increasingly fewer resources available to civil society organizations globally and shifting funding models among donor agencies, the near conclusion of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the design of a post-2015 development agenda. These shifts at the global and national level place ICAD at a critical juncture. They call on us to revisit the Coalition's strategic framework and to renew the analysis to develop a feasible and visionary blueprint for advancing ICAD's vision and mandate within this new landscape until the next planning cycle in 2017. The new framework will be accompanied by a theory of change document, which together will comprise all of ICAD's work. In addition, the strategic planning process will inform the renewal of ICAD's bylaws as part of the transition to Canada's new not-for-profit legislation.
