Student AIDS Association UOIT/DC

In Canada today, it is estimated a little over 75,000 people are living with HIV and AIDS. With the number of cases still increasing, it is unfortunate that in our society today this disease does not seem very prevalent. The Student AIDS Association is a group of students passionate about HIV and AIDs and as a club we will collaborate together to help eradicate stigmas placed on HIV and AIDS by raising awareness and knowledge about the disease as well as raise money for the Canadian AIDS Society, an organization that uses their funds to promote education and awareness, mobilize communities, advocate at the federal public policy level and provide information and resources for HIV and AIDS.
