ICAD's Annual General Meeting is just around the corner and this year, we're in Ottawa! Mark the date: 13 May, 2014. We are pleased to share that our event will be held in conjunction with the joint Annual Forum hosted by the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC) and the Canadian Association of International Development Professionals (CAIDP). The conference titled, Redefining Development Partnerships: A New Role for Canadians in Global Equity and Cooperation presents Canadian HIV/AIDS and international development organizations with an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of our sector and its important work, engage with various stakeholders, hear and learn from each other and our Southern partners, and further strengthen collaboration and partnership across the sector.

Individuals claiming to work for "ICAD Kenya" have allegedly been attempting to raise funds in Kenya. They have also used Facebook to create an appearance of being affiliated with us. ICAD has no offices anywhere in developing countries, nor do we raise funds from individuals or NGOs in any developing country.

As millions celebrate International Women's Day this March 8, it's worth reflecting on where gaps remain in addressing gender issues in the spread of and response to HIV.
The face of HIV has changed dramatically since the early years of the epidemic. Women now represent more than half of all people living with HIV worldwide. In Canada, women also bear a growing burden of HIV - about one-quarter of HIV infections are among women, nearly double the proportion observed in 1999.
The February edition of the Canadian Association of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (CAPPD)’s factsheet focuses on the role of parliamentarians in ensuring that governments uphold commitments and obligations relating to human rights, including sexual and reproductive rights, both domestically and in its foreign relations and development cooperation. The factsheet provides concrete examples of what parliamentarians can do in this regard, and where to find additional information on the subject.
