2006 Labour Forum on AIDS
|The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) hosted the first ever global meeting specifically for trade unionists working on HIV/AIDS.
The Labour Forum on AIDS was held August 11 to 13 at the Toronto offices of the United Steel Workers of America, 25 Cecil Street,
just south of the University of Toronto (downtown). The forum will brought together activists from around the world, and provided an
opportunity to analyze the effectiveness of the various activities of trade unionists and to learn from each other’s experiences to
develop strengths and strategies for a better response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
It was held just prior to the XVI International AIDS Conference, which is also being held in Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention
Centre from August 13 to 18, 2006. The International Aids Conference is considered the premier opportunity for expanding technical
knowledge and policy advocacy work on HIV/AIDS.
