From 6-10 December, the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA) takes place in Durban, South Africa. On the second day, 7 December, the Love Alliance organises the side event ‘Speak out for health and human rights!’. During this event, we will usher in the Love Alliance Global Advocacy strategy 2022-2025, which focuses on supporting and strengthening key population movements to push for accountability and action.
The next five years are critical for attaining the Sustainable Development Goals and particularly the goal of ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. Civil Society and communities of people living with, affected by, and at risk of HIV have a huge role to play in the realization of this global commitment.
Community solidarity is needed now more than ever to influence decisions, engage in implementation and hold governments and partners accountable to the provision of universal health coverage and advancement of human rights for all.
The Love Alliance’s global advocacy strategy focus is on supporting and strengthening key population movements to build and organise, particularly by increasing the presence and visibility of young key populations through partnerships and building the capacity of key population networks at national and regional levels to push governments and partners to take action. This is to address human rights, gender equality, violence, criminalisation, stigma and discrimination; resource community-led interventions; and realise the objectives of global commitments on HIV, SRHR and UHC.
