KEVIN PERKINS | Ottawa (*Board President)
Kevin Perkins is the Founding Executive Director of CAP/AIDS. His interest in creating CAP/AIDS goes back to his days as a Senior Program Manager for a Canadian charity that implements integrated community development programs in Africa. While serving as program manager, Kevin witnessed the terrible unfolding of the AIDS pandemic. Kevin left CPAR in 1997 in order to work on local economic development initiatives in his own community of Riverdale, Toronto . Yet, the terrible reality of the AIDS crisis in Africa was never far from his mind, and Kevin felt that he had to devote his time, energy, skills and knowledge to doing his small part to help. The illness and death of several friends from AIDS - in Canada and Africa - heightened Kevin's desire to dedicate himself to fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Kevin brought together a group of his friends and colleagues, and together they decided to establish CAP/AIDS. On December 1, 2002 , the first meeting of the founding group launched this new NGO. Kevin left his job at Riverdale in January 2004, and became the founding Executive Director of CAP/AIDS on a part-time basis. In the spring of 2006, Kevin became the Executive Director of the Developing Countries Farm Radio Network, and adopted a new role as CAP/AIDS' President of the Board.

On February 22, 2005, Kevin Perkins, Executive Director of CAP AIDS Senate appeared before a session of the Standing Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs on health in Africa as a witness. Kevin's speech focused on the need to make HIV/AIDS a major cross-cutting theme of all forms of Canadian cooperation and engagement in Africa , and the importance of re-engaging Canadians and Canadian civil society in responding to the AIDS crisis in Africa . Kevin drew on the examples of the outpouring of Canadian support in response to the famine in the Horn of Africa in the 1980s, the Vietnamese "boat people" refugee crisis in the 1970s and the overwhelming response to the recent Tsunami, as examples of the type of response that is needed.
