CANADA SHOULD BE A MODEL STUDENT IN ADDRESSING HIV/AIDS BUT RECEIVES VERY POOR GRADES:

Canada failing women, young women, girls and trans women as it relates to HIV

July 19, 2012 - As a resource-rich, developed country, Canada has the potential to be a model student in addressing legal, ethical and human rights, research, stigma, discrimination, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, HIV education, care and support needs for women, young women, girls and trans women. Despite this, the Canadian federal government is the dunce in the corner of the classroom, according to the 2012 Canadian Report Card being released on July 24 by the Coalition for a Blueprint for Action on Women and Girls and HIV/AIDS. The Canadian federal government received poor grades in every one of these areas as it is failing women generally and particular communities of women specifically through funding cuts, laws and practices that are counter to what evidence reveals is necessary to address the HIV epidemic among women, young women, girls and trans women.
