2019 OAN
Election Package

As you know, we are in the midst of a federal election that will conclude with voters making their choices on Monday, October 21, 2019. This is a crucial election and we have an opportunity to let all candidates, parties and voters know that the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Canada still requires a strong federal government response, and to seek their commitments to supporting the fight against HIV/AIDS in our community. We also require a strong government response to address criminalization, ensure a safe drug supply and a commitment to harm reduction. So far, it seems to be a close election with no obvious outcome. This is perfect opportunity to persuade the candidates and parties who need every vote.

For over 20 years, the OAN has evolved and grown to a membership of 33 Member
& 9 Affiliate Member agencies, creating one of the strongest health movements in Ontario.




“It’s very, very clear that the risk is zero. If you are on suppressive antiretroviral treatment, you are sexually non-infectious.”

– Dr Alison Rodger

lead author of PARTNER 2, presenting at the 22nd International AIDS
Conference (AIDS 2018) in Amsterdam, July 25, 2018.
