March 1 is UNAIDS’ Zero Discrimination Day. Though we have the tools to end the AIDS epidemic locally and globally, stigma and discrimination may pose the greatest barrier to achieving this goal in our lifetime. Stigma and discrimination create barriers to people accessing HIV prevention, testing and treatment services, putting lives at risk.
To honor this day, Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) and The Spahr Center are co-hosting “Getting to zero: confronting HIV-related stigma and discrimination, locally and globally,” a free film screening, live panel and Q&A, sponsored by the Global Public Health department of Dominican University of California. For those unable to attend in-person, the event will stream live from Facebook!
