NO HIV Stigma
06/11/2019 / Basel, Switzerland
Awareness campaign 6 - 9 November; Demo and march 8 November 2019
NO Stigma This year, Switzerland is hosting the European AIDS Conference - EACS 2019. The conference will take place from 6 to 9 November 2019 in Basel. More than 3,000 participants from all over the world are expected. We as a community want to seize the opportunity of the European Conference and carry out a broad public campaign on HIV/AIDS in Basel - with implications for the whole of Switzerland and Europe. (...) While science has made great strides, discrimination against people with HIV has remained. Fear and prejudice against people living with HIV are deeply rooted in people, without good reason. However, some people with HIV also stigmatize themselves. Many cannot live with their HIV infection because of public pressure.
