Given ACT’s important role in educating their community about HIV infections and the steps to prevention, ACT’s website required a redesign and redevelopment as to allow for all users to access critical information quickly and easily. In December 2022, ACT partnered with Sandbox for their site. Sandbox’s discovery activities with ACT included stakeholder interviews and a Google analytics review.


In October 2023, Sandbox launched the AIDS Committee of Toronto's site. ACT’s new website is now a flagship for ACT’s digital properties while it works to increase volunteer hours, expand communications, and increase the number of supporters for the committee.
