World AIDS Day, December 1st, which also launches the start of Aborigianl AIDS Awareness Week in Canada, is a time for reflection: on what we have achieved with regard to the national and global response to HIV, and what we still must achieve.
World AIDS Day is a day dedicated to commemorate those who have passed on and to raise awareness about AIDS and the global spread of the HIV virus. On a national scale, the Public Health Agency of Canada estimated that 65,040 Canadians were living with HIV in 2014, of whom an estimated 52,220 were diagnosed. This means that an estimated 20% of people in Canada with HIV are undiagnosed and unaware they are living with HIV.
