Ontario’s co-ordinated response to HIV/AIDS includes policy development and program delivery. The province spends approximately $55 million a year on HIV/AIDS-related initiatives. This does not include physician billings to OHIP or HIV/AIDS drugs.

The Ontario government provides funding for more than 90 programs and services across the province to deliver HIV/AIDS prevention, education and support programs for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, and those most at risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS in Ontario.

workers to maintain high levels of human service
organizations to retain invaluable professional staff and volunteers, including board members
communities to respond effectively to the diverse groups now requiring support.
We have been helping ASOs and other AIDS-serving organizations in Ontario strengthen resiliency in the face of multiple loss and grief since 1994.
