In view of the IAC 2014 in Melbourne , a petition has been put up calling for you to support and endorse the AIDS 2014 Melbourne declaration.
The declaration speaks against the criminalization of HIV/AIDS and all forms of discrimination.
See excerpts from the declaration below:
“We gather in Melbourne, the traditional meeting place of the Wurundjeri, Boonerwrung, Taungurong, Djajawurrung and the Wathaurung people, the original and enduring custodians of the lands that make up the Kulin Nation, to assess progress on the global HIV response and its future direction, at the 20th International AIDS Conference, AIDS 2014.
We, the signatories and endorsers of this Declaration, affirm that non-discrimination is fundamental to an evidence-based, rights-based and gender transformative response to HIV and effective public health programmes.
To defeat HIV and achieve universal access to HIV prevention,treatment, care and support – nobody should be criminalized or discriminated against …….”.
