AIDS Awareness

NOVEMBER 30, 2022 -- AIDS Awareness Month (December), World AIDS Day (December 1st) and Indigenous AIDS Awareness Week (December 1st to 7th) continue to provide opportunities to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and its impacts; to remember, honour and celebrate those who have died of HIV/AIDS; and to support education and prevention activities that seek to counter stigma and discrimination that target people who are living with, affected by or at risk of HIV/AIDS.

According to a CBC Saskatchewan report earlier this year, "Saskatchewan's HIV numbers remain the highest in Canada with transmission rates at more than double the national average."
