ADVOCATES CALL ON G8/G20 LEADERS TO TAKE ACTION ON AIDS CRISIS IN CANADA AND THE DEVELOPING WORLD

Toronto, June 22, 2010

June 18, 2010 - This year is the target date set by G8 countries for achieving "universal access" to HIV prevention services and to HIV care, treatment and support, yet global action on AIDS is falling off the G8 agenda, despite repeated promises.

With Canada hosting the G8 and G20 Summits, leading experts and advocates from both Canada and Africa will underline the progress made in recent years and the gains at risk if Canada and other countries fail to take action. They will also provide tangible measures that could be taken to help overcome HIV/AIDS both in Canada and in developing countries.

Time:              from 11:00AM to 12 Noon

Format:           11:00AM to 11:30AM - brief statements from panel of speakers

                        11:30AM to 12:00PM - moderated Q&As, priority given to media

Location:        Room G in Oakham House

                        Ryerson University campus

                        55 Gould Street (between Church and Yonge streets), Toronto
