Dear Minister,

We are writing to request your leadership and your confirmation that the current levels of funding that have been uniquely designated for community led HIV prevention programs and support services for HIV positive people across Canada will continue to remain in place and will be increased. This request is a follow up to our prior correspondence that was endorsed by AIDS Service Organizations from every province or region in Canada and sent to your predecessor, the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq on June 6, 2011. We have yet to receive a response.
