“Debunking Denialism” event on HIV/AIDS in South Africa at Amnesty International UK, November 11th
Debunking denialism and the fight for treatment: Campaigning for the rights of people with HIV & AIDS in South Africa.
Date: Wed 11 November 2009
Vuyiseka Dubula is General Secretary of the Treatment Action Campaign, a leading voice on HIV/AIDs campaigning in South Africa. She is a dynamic young woman leader of TAC, who lives openly with HIV, and who has been at the centre of most of their campaigns over the last 10 years.
Vuyiseka will share the story of TAC, the importance of activism in achieving their goals, the campaigning techniques that they have found to be effective and some of the challenges they have faced along the way – including debunking the myths that have been promoted about HIV and AIDS.
We hope you can join us for what promises to be a hugely informative talk followed by a question and answer session.
Entry is free but booking is essential. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7033 1677 if you would like to attend./
