«HIV/AIDS – Humanity is not divisible» Stigma and Discrimination in Switzerland and Africa
Joining Federal Councillor Alain Berset, other committed speakers took a critical look at the issue of “Stigma and Discrimination in Switzerland and Africa” from a wide range of perspectives.
Although enormous progress has been made in the last 30 years throughout the world in the treatment, prevention, provision of psychological support, and in accompanying people affected with
HIV/AIDS, HIV/AIDS continues to be a major challenge for humankind. The important thing is to consolidate progress that has been achieved and to build on it for the future. HIV/AIDS must remain an
important and topical issue. The event was organized by the SDC and the Swiss Aids Foundation, and was further supported by GILEAD Sciences Switzerland, the Novartis Foundation for Sustainable
Development and the Migros Culture Percentage.
