Ride in support of the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD)!
ICAD provides leadership in the response of Canadian international development organizations and Canadian HIV organizations in reducing the impact of the global HIV and AIDS epidemic. ICAD pursues its mission through the following avenues:
Improving public policy: ICAD conducts research and analysis, convenes stakeholders and provides expert advice to promote and enhance policy dialogue in Canada’s response to the global HIV epidemic.
Providing information and analysis: ICAD develops and identifies educational tools and resource materials to help its members, the public, international development organizations, governmental and non-governmental bodies, and other stakeholder groups understand and act upon important issues in the global HIV epidemic and in Canada’s response.
Sharing lessons learned: ICAD strengthens the capacity of various stakeholders, including its members and governments, to address the global HIV epidemic by sharing lessons learned on programs and partnerships.
The ICAD Pedal Pushers are riding to raise funds in support of Simba Utano, a project that is working to improve the health of adolescent girls and young women at risk of HIV in Zimbabwe. Implemented in partnership with ICASO and with two Zimbabwean partners, Katswe Sistahood and Youth Engage, Simba Utano is addressing the systemic barriers to accessing health for adolescent girls and young women and other vulnerable populations. It seeks to improve the delivery of quality and responsive sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and HIV services for these populations.
