#NoHIVstigma campaign & events launched at European AIDS Congress (EACS) by community organisation Life4me+
Life4me+ "People with HIV still fear being marginalized or stigmatized because of their HIV status," says Alex Schneider, Chair of Life4me+. The scientist wants to use the upcoming European AIDS Congress (EACS) in Switzerland to educate the general public about life with HIV. In November 2019, about 3,000 researchers and community members will meet in Basel for the 17th EACS conference. According to Schneider, much of what’s discussed at events like EACS never reaches the general public: "People with HIV who receive successful therapy can not pass it on to other people. Not even via sex without a condom." (Photo: NoHIVstigma)
The dedicated website https://nostigma.ch will be updated frequently to keep people informed about the events of Life4me+ during the EACS and the rest of the #NoHIVstigma campaign.
