Ontario and Nunavut Region
Haoua Inoua has been an active volunteer since 1999 and is currently a support and strategy worker at the AIDS Committee of Ottawa (ACO). She was awarded the Humanitarian Award by the African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO) and is a board member of ACCHO and a member of the International AIDS Society (IAS)."
As a person impacted by HIV, she is a fierce human rights advocate and activist. In her work, she has been fortunate to have met many people who are also impacted by HIV/AIDS. She has come to realize the effects that social determinants of health—employment, housing, poverty, immigration, etc.—have on the spread of HIV and on the lives of PHAs.
She is certain that if people have fair and equal access to health and social services and other important resources, they can improve their quality of life. She has been, and will continue to be, devoted and dedicated to fighting for prevention, support, care and treatment for ACB (African, Caribbean and other Black people) and all communities impacted by HIV/AIDS.
