Thirty years into the HIV epidemic, we now have the scientific and medical know-how to prevent new HIV infections. But the potential to #endAIDS is being blocked by lack of information and access to new prevention technologies, huge disparities in access to anti-retroviral treatment, and by laws and policies that punish and criminalize people living with HIV (PLHIV) and vulnerable populations. A strong undercurrent of stigma and discrimination runs rampant throughout.
The HIV Advocates website carefully selects toolkits to help individuals and organizations working on HIV to advocate effectively to overturn discriminatory laws and policies and expand access to treatment and information. These advocacy toolkits collect best practice examples globally, from sex-worker led programming to MSM led advocacy programming. Its Advocacy Stories section compiles the work experiences, stories, and case studies of HIV advocacy work from community organizations around the world – from Argentina, to China, to Russia, to Thailand and beyond. The HIV Advocates Calendar keeps you up to date on what’s going on in HIV advocacy year round.
