Message from the Board Chair
What a year 2020 has been! None of us could have known the challenges we would face. COVID-19 has impacted on us all and brought so much suffering, but our communities have stayed strong.
From networks of sex workers to youth organisations, marginalised communities have found innovative ways of adapting their work to protect the rights of people living with HIV and ensuring that we can continue to access essential health services.
GNP+ is proud to champion the critical role that communities have played in the COVID-19 response and to highlight the lessons that we must all learn if marginalised communities are to be guaranteed access to health in the future.
The HIV movement has decades of experience dealing with a global health epidemic. We have learnt many lessons over those years, developed skills and expertise that has enabled us at GNP+ to adapt our ways of working and continue with renewed determination to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV, in all our diversity.
All of the incredible things we have achieved as GNP+ in 2020 have been possible through the support and solidarity of our partners. And while the pandemic impacted us too, it has not stopped us. If anything, it has reignited our determination to fight injustice, as we continue to be inspired by the work of our communities.
Chair, GNP+ Board
