Advocacy and HIV

Advocacy and HIV

Berne, 17 April 2012. Support groups of people living with HIV turn more and more into advocacy groups to stand up for their interests and rights. The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) in South Africa has held government accountable for health care service delivery, campaigned against official AIDS denialism, challenged the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies to make treatment more affordable and cultivated community leadership on HIV and AIDS. Advocacy is a key component in the struggle towards an AIDS-free future and the fulfilment of the right to health for all.

The aidsfocus.ch conference 2012 focused on advocacy and opened a space for sharing, discussion and joint learning on experiences, visions and strategies to end the epidemic.

Annual conference of aidsfocus.ch, the Swiss platform on HIV/AIDS and international cooperation administered by Medicus Mundi Switzerland.
