HIV: Fight stigma with awareness


HIV Science has made great progress, but the public has not kept up.

People with HIV continue to experience stigma and discrimination. The virus in the blood is apparently easier to eliminate than the stigma in the mind.

We want to make people aware that all people have the same rights, with or without HIV, whether LGBTI+, sex workers, migrants or anybody. Show your solidarity!

Let's shout NO STIGMA and NO DISCRIMINATION together!

Come to the demonstration!
