Health GAP @ AIDS 2016


Health GAP was in Durban, South Africa for the 21st International AIDS Conference from July 18-22, 2016 where, with allies from around the world, we hosted workshops, gave presentations, convened activist meetings and took to the streets to protest the deadly political decisions that prevent people living with HIV from around the world from accessing life-saving treatment. Among our demands were:

  •  an end to broken funding promises 
  •  action to address the massive shortage of health workers
  •  the elimination of bad trade deals that will drive up the prices of lifesaving medicines
  •  an end to bigotry, discrimination and repression that threatens to undermine the response.

MARCH FOR QUALITY TREATMENT FOR ALL! 

Health GAP, the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) and Section 27 organized a massive mobilization through the streets of Durban on the opening day of the conference.
