India HIV/AIDS Alliance has lined up an action packed day for you today (Wednesday 25 July) at the International AIDS conference, you are cordially invited to attend all our sessions to learn more about our work in India to improve the AIDS response for communities most affected by the epidemic. Our commitment is to make sure the voices of these communities are heard at AIDS 2012 and beyond.
Our sessions today range from a panel discussion to oral presentations and poster exhibits, and highlight our experiences in a wide variety of areas, including reaching key populations in SRH/HIV integration; addressing the unmet sexual and reproductive health and rights of people living with HIV; mobilizing female sex workers to increase STI service utilization; findings from our baseline study on people who inject drugs and why we should support the decriminalisation of drug use; and more!
