AIDS 2010: Is AIDS Activism Dead?

AIDS 2010: Is AIDS Activism Dead?

For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

This session will examine how leaders from key populations have made a difference by being involved. It will look at selected examples of how their meangful involvement in AIDS policy and programme design has improved the AIDS response, from advocating to change counter productive policies and laws such as criminalization of behavior, to ensuring that universal access targets, AIDS strategies, programmes and monitoring and evaluation systems take into consideration their realities and needs. All panelists will talk about what they have achieved because of meaningful involvement, what strategies they chose and why, and what challenges they faced along the way. Participants will learn about what meaningful involvement is, what it means and what its key elements are, what is needed to make meaningful involvement a reality and a success, and concrete examples of when meaningful involvement has lead to positive change and impact.
