For the Transgender Community, Recognition of Their Human Rights is Key to Closing the Gap

In a recent study of ten low-income and middle-income countries, the prevalence of HIV in transgender women was found to be incredibly high, at nearly 18%. Transgender women who engage in sex work are especially vulnerable, and most in need of prevention, treatment, and care.

This World AIDS Day, if we truly want to close the gap, we must work together to put the needs of our most vulnerable communities at the forefront of the fight.

Status Quo Is Not Enough To Fight the AIDS Epidemic


This blog by Meaghan Derynck first appeared on Huffington Post here.

Ambition is what drives us all. It's the belief that through commitment, hard work, the right motivation, and bold goals, we can accomplish something as substantial as the eradication of a disease.

Too often though, we fall victim to the limitations we place on our ambitions - we segment our efforts, or believe that we shouldn't set our sights too high for risk of failure.

On World AIDS Day, Continued Research on HIV Remains Imperative
Researchers continue to uncover gaps in treatment

While there's no question that World AIDS Day marks an opportunity to celebrate huge strides in fighting the HIV epidemic over the last three decades, complex questions remain about gaps in treatment access along lines of gender, race, geographic region, drug behaviour and age.

To End the AIDS Epidemic, We Need to Attack its Roots

The global AIDS landscape has undergone a shift of continental proportions over the past three decades. Our collective efforts have reached transformative milestones with more progress over the past five years than in the preceding 23 years (The Gap Report, UNAIDS 2014). Experts affirm that we have successfully crossed a threshold and have begun to bend the curve of new HIV infections in neighbourhoods around the world.

E-mail Print PDF

For the past several months, national, regional and international discussions and consultations have been taking place regarding the design of a new development agenda to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 2000. The Post-2015 discussion has included a broad array of perspectives, ambitions, needs and priorities in the context of a rapidly changing landscape. At this key moment, it is critical that like-minded civil society advocates present a united and coherent voice on the future of the development agenda.
