Feb 13, 2018
The head of the United Nations branch dedicated to ending AIDS globally says the biggest surprise from his visit to Saskatoon this week was the “lack of trust” between Indigenous people and authorities.
Michel Sidibé is the executive director of UNAIDS and under-secretary general of the United Nations.
He was in Saskatoon on Monday and Tuesday for a conference about HIV in Saskatchewan, where rates of the virus are the highest in Canada.
