The Ontario Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS (OACHA) has developed a strategy HIV/AIDS Strategy to 2026: Focusing Our Efforts – Changing the Course of Prevention, Engagement and Care Cascade in Ontario.

It was developed in consultation with a broad range of HIV/AIDS stakeholders, including people living with HIV and those from priority populations who are at-risk of HIV, people working in community-based HIV organizations (like ACNBA) and programs, HIV clinical care services and public health units.

It includes a report on the state of progress and the remaining challenges in the response to HIV in the province, and a series of recommendations on how to ensure the response to HIV in Ontario can fully capitalize on scientific advancements in HIV prevention, care and treatment. Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, supports this strategy and the ongoing work of implementing the recommendations, work that will continue to be supported through long-standing collaborative relationships between the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, people with and at-risk of HIV, and HIV community and health services and research stakeholders.
