Residents of York Region will have better access to community-based HIV/AIDS education and support services.
The McGuinty government is providing the AIDS Committee of York Region with $156,000 in 2008/09 â€“ an increase of $38,100 from last year to assist with increased local needs and growing service demands.
The government is providing a total of $33.7 million to community-based HIV/AIDS education and support programs for people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, and for those most at risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS.
â€œCommunity-based HIV/AID services area a vital part of our governmentâ€™s response to the HIV epidemic,â€ said Health and Long-Term Care Minister David Caplan. â€œThey help people living with HIV/AIDS maintain healthy, productive lives and provide education to others at risk.
