AIDS 2016

The 21st International AIDS Conference is being held in Durban, South Africa from 18-22 July. It will take place at Durban’s International Convention Centre (ICC), and the theme for this year is “Access Equity Rights Now”.

Access Equity Rights Now is a call to action to work together and reach the people who still lack access to comprehensive treatment, prevention, care and support services.

Access Equity Rights Now is a call to action to strengthen the commitment to HIV research evidence-based interventions.

Access Equity Rights Now is a call to action to all HIV stakeholders to unite and overcome injustices caused by violence and the exclusion of people on the basis of gender, class, race, nationality, age, geographic location, sexual orientation and HIV status.

Access Equity Rights Now is a call to action to repeal laws that infringe on people’s human rights and deny communities the ability to participate in the world as equals.

Access Equity Rights Now reminds us that all our gains will be lost if we do not continue to push forward and build a strong global movement to change the course of the epidemic.
