BC Health Ministry marked World AIDS Day by delivering severe funding cuts to HIV/AIDS service directed Community Based Health Organizations (CBHO’s.).
18% of Canada’s estimated total HIV-positive population lives in BC. Given that BC represents approximately 13% of the overall population of Canada; BC has a disproportionate share of the HIV burden. These funding cuts by the government will create a severe public health risk.
Add your voice to the growing numbers of people who want to see these funding cuts canceled. This is a call to action. The BC government must CANCEL THE CUTS!”
