The Coalition for a Blueprint for Action on Women and Girls and HIV/AIDS says that Ottawa is failing to help women and girls with HIV and AIDS. Their press release at the International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C. this July states: "... the Canadian federal government is failing women generally and particular communities of women specifically through funding cuts, laws and practices that are counter to what evidence reveals is necessary to address the HIV epidemic among women, young women, girls and trans women."
