«HIV/AIDS – Humanity is not divisible» Stigma and Discrimination in Switzerland and Africa

Cover des Flyers

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.
