About Help Eliminate Disease and Addiction Canada:

Founded in 2007, Help Eliminate Disease and Addiction Canada’s (HEDAC) mission is to eliminate disease and addiction by focusing on treatment and recovery. The website states that its focus is on the treatment and recovery of AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and addiction. HEDAC has experienced tremendous growth, issuing $60.7m in tax donation receipts in 2008. HEDAC credits its success to new philanthropy techniques.

In 2010, HEDAC shipped 8 million pills to Haiti, including the anti-retroviral Zidolam, the anti-fungal Fluconozol, and the broad-spectrum antibiotic Ciprofloxacin. In order to efficiently distribute these medicines to those in need throughout Haiti and the Dominican Republic, HEDAC has partnered with US-based AIDS charities, Aid for AIDS International, and Housing Works.

DONOR ADVISORY: HEDAC's charity status was revoked by the CRA Charities Directorate for cause regarding tax fraudulent activities.
