World AIDS Day


On December 1, World AIDS Day, CUPE renews its commitment to breaking down barriers for people with AIDS and HIV. Our union continues to support the global AIDS movement that struggles against discrimination and fights for improvements in public treatment programs.

Poverty, violence and other forms of marginalization mean the impacts of this ongoing epidemic are not shared equally. Women, people with disabilities, and racialized and Indigenous peoples have higher rates of AIDS and HIV, and face greater barriers to treatment and vital services. This inequality is unacceptable.
