Poster) at the Government of Canada Booth, Leading Together: Canada Takes Action on HIV/AIDS in the Exhibition Hall at the XVI International AIDS Conference, 2006 - Poster Quote by Bradford McIntyre: In 1985, I was told by my doctor to inform my family, arrange my finances and funeral; I had six months to live! A long time survivor living with HIV since 1984, Bradford McIntyre announced publicly on national TV, on the Dini Petty Show, World AIDS Day, December 1, 1994; that he was living with HIV. He has been a dynamic advocate for the health and wellness of people living with HIV and AIDS and is committed to effecting change, not only in his own life, but also for millions of others with the same diagnosis.

Bradford has appeared on national television and radio, in numerous newspaper and magazine interviews and documentaries; promoting the message that everyone can take responsibility for their health, regardless of doctors’ diagnoses. Along with local, national and international speaking engagements, Bradford's articles on HIV and AIDS have been published in newspapers, magazines and on web sites around the world. Unceasingly, he has appealed to our government for funding for complementary and alternative medicine and integrative health care, nutrition and subsidized housing for those infected with HIV.

Bradford has constantly championed 'the war' against the AIDS virus. Through his commitment to help transform the lives of others, alter public perception and influence the mainstream medical profession's attitude and approach to treatment, change has occurred. Bradford is a dedicated and tireless advocate for enhancing awareness about HIV and AIDS.

Bradford's vision for a better future has inspired many people to look at life in a different light. He works hard and constantly at promoting to the world-at-large his positive messages of living with HIV and AIDS. Even while managing his own challenging HIV related health problems, he has committed to involve himself in many ways within the Vancouver, British Columbia community, nationally and globally.

Bradford's global impact is shown through a comprehensive, informative website. When you visit his website Positively Positive-Living with HIV/AIDS (www.PositivelyPositive.ca), you will discover a wide variety of life affirming and supportive topics. About Bradford, HIV/AIDS Articles, Alternative Therapies, HIV/AIDS Videos, HIV/AIDS Links, HIV/AIDS News and HIV/AIDS News Archives. He collaborates with individuals, groups and organizations throughout the world. He strives for excellence in the cause against prejudice and ignorance where HIV and AIDS are concerned. Bradford is committed to informing governments, the medical establishment and the media that the fundamental rights of individuals living with HIV and AIDS must be protected and upheld. Discrimination of people living with HIV must not be tolerated. Specific examples: Bradford's articles 'HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination', 'HIV Disclosure' and 'Education Key In AIDS Battle'. These can be read online or downloaded from the article section.

Since 1994, whenever possible, Bradford McIntyre has volunteered his time and energy to participate in HIV and AIDS causes and events.
