OAN News

The latest news from the Ontario AIDS Network


U=U Toolkit

In advance of World AIDS Day, the Ontario AIDS Network has laid out a thorough, accessible and visually attractive version of the OAN U=U Position Statement

This document, which was authored by Board Co-chair John McCullagh and includes contributions by many others, highlights the pivotal position of service providers to relay and incorporate U=U messaging into their work.

As a companion document, we have also crafted a U=U Toolkit which contains printable, poster-quality pages with key messages for display or for sharing with staff and clients. We encourage you to take a look and print, post, share and/or tweet what resonates with you.

This World AIDS Day, the OAN wants to encourage all member organizations and their friends to celebrate and share the U=U message to improve the lives of people living with HIV all across Ontario – and beyond!

OAN Support Workers Workshop

The OAN Support Workers Workshop, interwoven with the OHTN’s Endgame Research Conference, is fast approaching. 

Please reach out to me if you have registered but have not yet heard from either Ryan Kerr from the OAN or from a staff person at the OHTN.

We are looking forward to hosting you December 6th and 7th!
