World AIDS Day: Remembering the forgotten
Every 1st Dec, the world unites to commemorate World AIDS day. This year's global theme, 'Getting to Zero', is aimed at reducing the global prevalence to the lowest rate possible.
Based on Uganda's theme, 'Re-engaging leadership for effective HIV prevention', the Refugee Law Project brings you a 5-minute Video aimed at raising awareness about the plight of refugee communities living with HIV/AIDS. The lack of a coherent strategy for engaging refugee communities renders them invisible to caregivers and undermines efforts to reduce the prevalence of HIV in the country and indeed Getting to Zero.
The corresponding lack of attention is a challenge affecting all areas of refugee protection and assistance, whether they live in camps or in urban areas.
