On World AIDS Day, speakers demand help for marginalized communities
Dave Miller wants the same level of awareness and support during World AIDS Day, every day.
Miller is a Mi’kmaw HIV activist and works as a community health educator at Healing Our Nations, an organization based in Dartmouth working to educate Indigenous communities on AIDS and HIV.
“Indigenous HIV rates are a lot higher,” Miller said in an interview.
The AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia, or ACNS, held a candlelight vigil on Dec. 1 for World AIDS Day, which also marks the start of Indigenous AIDS Awareness Week.
