Population-Specific HIV/AIDS Status Report: Women

Dear Madam or Sir, 

I am pleased to announce the release of the Population-Specific HIV/AIDS Status Report:  Women.

This report is the third in a series of eight reports being prepared by the Public Health Agency of Canada on populations particularly affected by HIV/AIDS in Canada. Please find attached a PDF version of the document in English and French. Please feel free to distribute the report widely to your networks.

This is the first time that HIV/AIDS-related information specific to women in Canada has been presented in such a comprehensive manner. The status report includes women-focused demographic information and epidemiological data about HIV and AIDS in Canada; information on the determinants of health as they impact the vulnerability and resilience of women to HIV/AIDS; a description of current Canadian research; and a discussion of the current Canadian response to HIV/AIDS among women.

The report is also available by contacting the Agency’s Centre for Communicable Disease and Infection Control([email protected]) or from the CATIE Ordering Centre (www.catie.ca).

I hope that you find the report both useful and informative.

Best wishes,
Marc-Andre Gaudreau
