A resource-sharing community for Canadian HIV and hepatitis C service providers

AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT)

Since 1983 ACT has developed programs and services that respond to the changing needs of the communities it serves.

ACT provides support services that empower men, women and youth living with HIV to achieve self-determination, informed decision-making, independence, and overall well-being. We do this through programs such as counselling, information provision, social support activities and programs that help people with HIV return to work.

ACT works with gay men, women and youth to increase their knowledge, skills and resilience in the face of HIV, and reduce HIV transmission. We work with our communities to develop information about HIV, provide outreach and education and create opportunities for community members to increase their skills.

Today in Toronto, more people than ever are living with HIV and every day two more people are infected with HIV. So our work is far from over. With your help, ACT can continue to take action against HIV/AIDS.
