Realize launches first of its kind resource to commemorate the 6th African, Caribbean and Black Canadian HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on February 7, 2020.
Realize, as the secretariat for the National Coordinating Committee on HIV and Aging, has been the leader in Canada in conducting community based research, leading discussions and holding conversations over the years about what it means to age with HIV and to be an older person living with HIV. We realized, however, that all narratives about aging with HIV and being an older person living with HIV are not homogeneous and as such, partnered with a number of ACB stakeholders to inquire about – for the first time by any national HIV organization in Canada – what it means to age well with HIV in the ACB community.
It is our hope that “To The Beat of Our Own Drum” (our new resource) will be used to open the floodgates of the many narratives around being an older person with HIV in Canada.
