Student Global AIDS Action Week

By Charlotte Robinson, April 10, 2018
Student Global AIDS Action Week runs April 9th to 13th. The National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) will join five days of grassroots action to show the U.S. government they will not stand by while it delays & deprioritizes fighting for people living with HIV & AIDS. The U.S. has been a leader in the response to the AIDS epidemic for the last 15 yeas & NASTAD demands that instead of backing away America must continue to lead the way to an AIDS-free generation. Because HIV exists at the intersection of public heath and social justice, NASTAD will join the Action Week to address five issues where progress is critical – from immigrant rights to ending poverty & tackling homophobia to achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation. NASTAD is a leading nonpartisan, nonprofit association that represents public health officials who administer HIV & hepatitis programs in the U.S. & around the world. Their singular mission is to end the intersecting epidemics of HIV, viral hepatitis & related conditions. They do this work by strengthening domestic and global governmental public health through advocacy, capacity building & social justice. The Student Global AIDS Campaign (SGAC) is a US-based network of student & youth organizations, including HIV+ youth, committed to the global fight against AIDS. SGAC seeks to mobilize a diverse student movement, in partnership with students internationally, to make claims upon governments, corporations & civil society through informed political advocacy & direct action. SGAC demands sufficient resources, effective prevention & guaranteed access to AIDS treatment & care as a matter of moral urgency.
