HIV co-infections with viral hepatitis: implications for screening and treatment in Asia
Saturday 28 February – Monday 2 March 2015 (WP1393)
On 1 March, the world will be marking the second annual UNAIDS Zero Discrimination Day 2015, a call to people everywhere to promote and celebrate everyone’s right to live a full life with dignity – no matter what they look like, where they come from or whom they love. The symbol for Zero Discrimination is the butterfly, widely recognized as a sign of transformation.
This year’s event, HIV co-infections with viral hepatitis: implications for screening and treatment in Asia, is taking place in Singapore over the weekend of 28 February – 2 March to coincide with Zero Discrimination Day 2015. Discussion at the Singapore meeting will focus on major scientific advances in screening and therapeutics, as well as approaches to overcoming barriers to access. Participants will share scientific and programmatic expertise, debate critical issues and identify practical ways to rapidly expand access to screening and treatment in heavily impacted communities across Asia.
Last year we convened a meeting on Promoting the human rights of LGBT persons: next steps for international institutions and civil society? and will continue to include dialogues around the topic of Zero Discrimination in its calendar of events.
