On Monday 13th October STOP AIDS will be hosting a discussion with one of the leading figures of the international HIV response, Mark Heywood, Executive Director of SECTION27 and one of the founders of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC).

Mark joined the AIDS Law Project, one of South Africa’s most successful post-apartheid human rights organisations, in 1994, becoming its head in 1997 and executive director in 2006. In 2007, he was elected as deputy chairperson of the South African National AIDS Council and is also the current chairperson of the UNAIDS Reference Group on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights. Mark has written extensively on HIV, human rights and the law, including co-editing the AIDS and the Law Resource Manual and Health & Democracy: A guide to human rights, health law and policy in post-Apartheid South Africa.

Join us and colleagues from TAC for a discussion about the current state of the South African health system and its impact on the HIV and TB responses, between 1-4pm on Monday 13th October. Attendance is open to STOPAIDS members and colleagues (feel free to circulate this invitation), and please RSVP to danielle@stopaids.org.uk.
