Students hit parliament!
Posted on: February 20 2015, 02:53 pm

Dear All,

The APPG for HIV and AIDS and the Student Stop AIDS Campaign invite you to the Annual Student Stop AIDS Campaign Speaker Tour chaired by Baroness Barker on Tuesday 3rd March in Room W1, House of Commons 13:30 – 14:30 (sandwiches will be provided).

Please spread the word!

The Student Stop AIDS Campaign is a network of young people in the UK who believe that the world’s response to the HIV pandemic is insufficient and unacceptable. They use activism and advocacy to campaign for zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS related deaths through three key areas: access to medicines, human rights and funding the response.

The Speaker Tour is an opportunity to meet inspirational young people living with HIV and to hear their personal stories. This year our speakers include Romanian born Cristian Sandulescu, a young man living with HIV and working with Positively UK and Juliana Odindo from Kenya, whose experiences of living with HIV as a child has inspired her to become an advocate for HIV paediatric medicines.  We will hear how national and international AIDS policy affects them and other young people and learn from their experience and expertise. These young people speak not as victims, but as hopeful, determined and capable individuals – their achievements should inspire us to take action.

There will also be an opportunity to meet members of the Student Stop AIDS Campaign and to pledge your support for the campaign’s efforts to deliver universal access to HIV treatment through better drug prices, fairer trade agreements and an improved medical innovation system.

We hope you are able to join us. Please RSVP to Matt.grady@parliament.uk

With best wishes,

Ben, on behalf of Saoirse and the SSAC team!
