The Canadian Strategy on HIV/AIDS safeguards Canada's capacity to respond to the evolving epidemic through innovation, sustainability and partnership.
Funding enables new and innovative programs that further engage the volunteer, health care and research communities in programs to prevent HIV infection and to care, treat and support people living with HIV/AIDS. These programs result in decreased infections, scientific advances in new treatment therapies, reliable diagnostic testing, effective health care practices, a strong community support system and a national knowledge base on how the epidemic is moving and changing. Under the Canadian Strategy on HIV and AIDS, three categories of funding are available through the AIDS Community Action Program (ACAP)
