The Canadian AIDS Society (CAS) is a national non-profit coalition of over 100 community-based AIDS organizations across Canada. AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome, is an acquired deficiency of the immune system (i.e., cell-mediated immunity) due to infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The Canadian AIDS Society is dedicated to strengthening the response to HIV/AIDS across all sectors of society and to enriching the lives of people and communities living with HIV/AIDS. The Society facilitates the development of programs, services, and resources for its member groups; advocates on behalf of people and communities affected by HIV/AIDS; provides a national framework for community-based participation in Canada's response to AIDS; and undertakes national initiatives in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and social policy. The Canadian AIDS Society seeks to accomplish its mission by promoting education and awareness, mobilizing communities, advocating at the federal public policy level, and providing information and resources. The Society's activities include working with its members and associates to identify needs, network, and design and implement programs specific to communities at risk for HIV/AIDS. In addition, the Society produces position statements, maintains a web site on the Internet, and produces a wide range of print resources, many of which are available through the Canadian HIV/AIDS Clearinghouse or may be downloaded from the Society's site. Such materials include brochures, papers, reports, guides, and bibliographies.
