ICAD Annual Report

Integrating HIV with Other Health and Development Initiatives
Linking International and Domestic Responses
Dear Friends,

As we get ready to say good-bye to 2015 and welcome in
2016, we have taken a moment to reflect on the tremendous work,
the exciting partnerships, and the new initiatives undertaken together as a Coalition over the 2014-2015 year.

From AIDS 2014 and our Canadian Report Back, to our engagement in the first ever national African, Black and Caribbean HIV Awareness Day, to our work with Parliamentarians and partners improving maternal, new born and child health, ICAD has been at the forefront of the Canadian response - here at home and abroad.

Please join us in our reminiscing. We have put together a few highlights offering a fine balance of video, visuals and narrative. The journey is yours, our success is collective. We couldn't have done it without you.

As you move through our story, click anywhere on the screen to bring the images closer, or to move them into the background.
We look forward to our continued collaboration in 2016 and the many years to follow.

In solidarity,
Marnie Davidson
, Care Canada, ICAD Board President
Robin Montgomery
, Executive Director, ICAD

Through ongoing engagement with our membership we are taking the lead in identifying strategies to end the HIV pandemic.
As part of the CAN-MNCH network, ICAD was in Toronto for the launching of the "Saving Every Woman Every Child" Initiative (2015-2020).
Learn, Participate, Exchange!

ICAD's invaluable role at home and abroad coordinating communications across sectors, communities and geographies to enhance Canadian civil society engagement in key global health dialogues and gatherings.
ICAD has had a tremendous year with your ongoing support, engagement and collaboration!
A special shout-out to an amazing, very committed and passionate group of people who make up the ICAD team:

The past year provided us with many valuable opportunities to create space for global and national dialogue and information exchange.
Stepping Up the Pace: A Report Back from AIDS 2014
An educational video produced in partnership with ICASO, CTAC, and the OHTN
The Numbers...
ICAD supports colleague, Maureen Owino (CAAT), in delivering a civil society intervention sharing Canadian experience responding to issues of Newcomer and Refugee Health and access to HIV prevention, treatment and care. The statement was made during the Thematic Session "
Addressing social and economic drivers of HIV through social protection
" at the 34th Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) meeting of UNAIDS in Geneva, Switzerland (July 1-3, 2014).
ICAD reinforces how lessons from global partners can inform local responses across Canada.

In partnership with CTAC and ICASO, we held a full day forum in Toronto to share and synthesize AIDS 2014 conference learnings making them more accessible, more practical, and more actionable.

Our AIDS 2014 Community Report Back provided an important opportunity to connect with the global HIV movement, learn from experiences in other neighbourhoods of the global village, and bring together the global and the local where one can inform the other.
In partnership with CTAC, ICASO and the OHTN, we produced a short educational video featuring brief interviews with each of our guest speakers at the Community Report Back.

The video captures key take-away messages from AIDS 2014 and their implications for the Canadian response.

ICAD's strong online and in-person presence at the 20th International AIDS Conference enabled us to convene with our members, partners and colleagues. Together, we shared details on AIDS 2014 events, presentations, and the energy of the Global Village with real-time coverage that bridged time zones and geographic distances.

(Melbourne, Australia 20-25,
July 2015)
In partnership with ICASO, we provided communication and technical support to community delegates through
STEPWise: the community guide to
AIDS 2014
AIDS 2014
AIDS 2014 with ICAD and partners at ICASO, RESULTS Canada, the Indigenous Networking Zone, the African Black Diaspora Global Network (ABDGN), and Robert Bardston of the Canadian HIV/AIDS African, Black Caribbean Network (CHABAC)
As a coalition, ICAD's voice contributed to the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC) submission on the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) draft civil society partnership policy.
ICAD understands that despite significant scientific advancement, HIV continues to sit at the nexus of health and development in Canada and around the world. We aim to highlight the complexities as well as the opportunities through our publications, webinars and resources.

In partnership with CHABAC and
CATIE, we delivered the first ever national African, Caribbean & Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on February 7. Events hit cities and social media sites across the countries with specific public engagement activities in Halifax, Dartmouth, Edmonton, and Toronto.

In fact, in Ontario, members of the CHABAC Steering Committee continue to make in roads to introduce a private members' bill within the Ontario legislature to have the day officially recognized in 2016. The Awareness Day was proclaimed by the City of Edmonton and the City of Halifax in 2015.
Held on Parliament
Hill, the event drew attention
to the linkages between
gender-based violence and
rising rates of HIV infection in
Aboriginal communities and
among women, youth, gay,
bisexual, two-spirited and
transgender people in Canada
and around the world.
On December 1st, we joined the global community
in celebration of World AIDS Day (WAD). It was
also the kick-off to Aboriginal AIDS Awareness
Week (AAAW) across Canada.

In solidarity with our partners: the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN), Paaktuutit Inuit
Women of Canada, the HIV/AIDS and
TB All-Parliamentary Caucus (HAT Caucus),
and with special guest appearance by the
Nunavut Sivuniksavuut singers, we held our third annual Parliamentary Breakfast.

We are thrilled to be bringing back internship opportunities for Aboriginal youth in Canada. In close partnership with the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network and a consortium of overseas partners and ICAD coalition member organizations, and funded through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), this two year (2015-2017) program offers action-based learning in international development projects with partners around the world.
