The Alberta Community Council on HIV is a non-profit, provincial, and member driven network of regionally based organizations. ACCH and its members have a collective responsibility to Sexually Transmitted & Blood Borne Infections (STBBI) issues and its outcomes at the provincial and local level. Through a social justice lens ACCH supports community based responses to HIV, STBBIs and Sexual Health via advocacy, harm reduction, education, and health promotion.
The Positive Voices Caucus (PVC), sponsored by the Alberta Community Council on HIV (ACCH), is a network for and by Albertans living with HIV. Our vision is for all people living with HIV and AIDS in Alberta to have equitable opportunity to lead lives that are full of good health and well-being and free from stigma.

History of HIV-a timeline – from CATIE
From 1981 to 2017- key moments in the HIV pandemic
The history of the HIV and AIDS epidemic began in illness, fear and death as the world faced a new and unknown virus. However, scientific advances, such as the development of antiretroviral drugs, have enabled people with access to treatment to live long and healthy lives with HIV.
Due to on-going enhancements to surveillance infrastructure, this year a set of surveillance summary tables is provided as an overview of HIV case surveillance in Canada for 2014-2015, instead of a full report. Specifically, these tables present the number of HIV cases in Canada for 2014-15, by province/territory, sex, age group, exposure category and race/ethnicity. The number of perinatally HIV-exposed infants and current status is also presented.
Please refer to the previously released HIV and AIDS in Canada: Surveillance Report to December 31, 2014 for a full description of methodology, information on data collection and data limitations.
