Shamin Mohamed Jr.

Shamin Mohamed Jr. (he/him) is an activist widely recognized for his significant contributions to youth involvement in the global HIV response. At 15, Shamin founded LetsStopAIDS, a youth-driven and youth-led Canadian charity. His efforts as a youth leader were awarded when he was named one of Canada’s ‘Top 20 under 20’. Twenty years later, LetsStopAIDS has grown to become Canada’s largest Youth-HIV charity. Under his leadership, LetsStopAIDS has extended its reach to over 72 countries, promoting a sex-positive and comprehensive approach to sexual health.

During his dynamic journey as an activist, Shamin became a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist. Shortly after completing his degree in Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa, he became co-founder of DECIEM, a multinational beauty company that revolutionized the skincare industry. As a result of his business success, Shamin possesses a unique perspective on organizational leadership. This experience gives him a pragmatic approach to policy development and program implementation. His contributions in these areas have solidified his reputation as a proven change-maker and thought leader.

LetsStopAIDS is Canada’s largest Youth-HIV charity focused on fostering youth leadership and enhancing awareness about HIV and sexual health among youth aged 15 to 29. With a vast network of volunteers worldwide, LetsStopAIDS implements educational initiatives, research, community engagement, and skills development programs in Canada and internationally. With programming reaching over 200,000 youth globally, LetsStopAIDS plays a crucial role in developing effective awareness strategies for HIV prevention and in actively combating HIV-related stigma within young communities.
