At AIDS 2020: Virtual, WNZ will be monumental, this is because 2020 also marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action and 20th anniversary of the UN security council resolution 1325 on Women Peace and Security. The WNZ promotes dialogue, forges new networks, raises the visibility of HIV, champions the leadership of women living with HIV (with an emphasis on young women and women from the local community), and promotes the global exchange of experiences, abilities, and knowledge. Now more than ever when rights are under attack and gains at risk of this kind of space. We aim to create a WNZ space that will be community-focused forum, and to be the heart of women's rights organizing and movement building at AIDS 2020 and beyond.

Love, life and riots

Room
Art Exhibits Channel
Session Description
Photo exhibition. In theory, the prognosis for a person diagnosed with HIV, Hepatitis C or TB is now better than it ever has been. In reality, that depends on where you live and who you are. Access to medicines is not equitable. Millions of people die each year because essential drugs are overpriced. Scientific advancements are worthless if they are out of reach. When health budgets won't stretch to treat everyone in need, the most vulnerable are left behind. Treatment activists around the world are fighting patent barriers to make medicines affordable. We won’t stop until everyone can access the life-saving medicines they deserve. www.makemedicinesaffordable.org
