The United Church has a long history of working on issues of health, including advocacy in support of national, universal health care for more than half a century. In recent years, the church has also advocated for the rights of people with HIV/AIDS, including universal access to anti-retroviral drugs.
Through our global partners, we support programs aimed at preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS. As well, the church has worked on biotechnology issues, including animal-to-human transplants, and continues to work ecumenically on biotechnology concerns through the Canadian Council of Churches.
