Welcome to AIDS Vancouver!

We are incredibly grateful to people living with HIV who have shaped this organization alongside the many staff, volunteers, and supporters who support people living with HIV.

At a Special General Meeting on February 6, 2023, the AIDS Vancouver membership endorsed a consultation process to revise the mission, vision, values statement, and brand during our 40th anniversary year. We decided to call it 'Vision Our Future'.

We heard from Indigenous Committee, Peer Navigators, The Corner Committee, women living with HIV, Positive Talk, Grupo Latino, clients of the Grocery Program, and a group of long-term thrivers and survivors. We also hosted drop-in times for people to share their ideas with Committee members. As we listened, we heard over and over again the importance of HIV-specific services, even as the ways HIV shows up and affects our communities continues to change. Now, in early 2024, we are closer than ever to our new purpose, values, name, and logo, our commitment is that the best parts of us will stay the same, and we will meet the challenge of being more accountable to our values, and welcoming to all our communities. Stay tuned for more news coming in spring 2024, and learn more about Vision Our Future so far

This video provides a insight into what was happening in 1983 when AIDS Vancouver was formed. It is part of a video series that pieces together the dynamic history of HIV in Vancouver, told by and for those who were there. In 1983, AIDS Vancouver's first community forum brought Paul Popham of the Gay Men's Health Crisis in NYC and was attended by many people who have shaped the response to HIV in Vancouver.
