Una Conversación Communitaria: Cura y Más de VIH (A Community Conversation: HIV Cure & More)

  • News

As part of the lead-up to the 2019 International AIDS Society (IAS) conference in Mexico City, CEG collaborated with local NGO partners Casa de la Sal and Clínica Especializada Condesa, as well as Mexico’s Centro de Investigación en Enfermedades Infecciosas (CIENI) and the Washington DC-based Martin Delany Collaboratory (MDC) BELIEVE program, to present a two-day pre-conference event on July 18-19, 2019. Hosting more than 300 attendees, Una Conversación Communitaria brought local people living with HIV/AIDS, NGO workers, students, and public health professionals who might otherwise have been unable to experience IAS 2019 together with international researchers, scientists, academics, and community organizations offering global learning opportunities. The event also helped ensure that the voices of the Mexican people could still be included in the international dialogue about HIV/AIDS, at a time when the Mexican government has cut back the resources available to local NGOs. Podcast of the event is available here.
