Founded in 1983, the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) is now a leader in efforts to end AIDS in Toronto. Through HIV and sexual health education, prevention and outreach, we are working towards our vision of a city with zero new HIV infections, zero HIV-related stigma and discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths.
ACT works to reduce new HIV infections in Toronto and promotes the independence, dignity, health and well-being of people living with HIV and AIDS and those at increased risk of HIV.

ACT launched HIVnow in June of 2015 as an opportunity to engage gay, bi, and queer men in meaningful discussions about the changing reality of HIV in Toronto. The original website (HIVnow.ca) included up to date information about: PrEP, undetectable viral load, HIV testing guidelines, and criminalization of HIV non-disclosure.
In 2017, ACT is excited to share a new iteration of the website with the most up to date information. In response to evolving discussions about PrEP, the Consensus Statement around undetectable viral load, and ultimately access to medications, we endeavor to create a website to further this dialog.
ACT would like to say thank you to the MAC AIDS Foundation and all our community partners who helped develop this resource:
