NDP STATEMENT ON LIBERAL CUTS TO HIV/AIDS ORGANIZATIONS

NDP Health Critic, Don Davies, issued the following statement:

“On Monday, it was revealed the Public Health Agency of Canada has denied and cut funding to several HIV/AIDS organizations that it has historically supported. These organizations provide important services to reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS and support those living with these illnesses.
Overall, these misguided health policy decisions will impede the efforts of those working in Canada to fight against HIV/AIDS and reduce supports for those living with these illnesses. “

I would like to join my colleague in calling on the Minister to restore this funding immediately.
