A Plan of Action for Canada to reduce HIV/AIDS-related stigma and discrimination
In spite of all that is known about the science of preventing and treating HIV infection, people living with HIV/ AIDS still face stigmatization and discrimination every day. Reducing stigma and discrimination is key to reducing the worst effects of the epidemic.
Governments have the primary responsibility for taking action, but everyone in the community has a role to play. The Legal Network is working in close collaboration with organizations across Canada and in other countries to ensure that the human rights of people living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS are respected.
