Vietnam hadn't hosted the Oxford Tropical Network annual conference in 18 years, so the organisers pulled out all the stops for a three day conference in Ho Chi Minh City...
People living with HIV around the world commonly suffer from stigma and discrimination in society and this can even be from government, healthcare providers, law enforcement and family.
Finding solutions for such complicated and interconnected problem was one of the tasks facing the WHO-affiliated organisation UNAIDS . And Drawnalism were very pleased to be asked by them to help identify ways to resolve these complex issues at the 41st Meeting of the Programme’s Coordinating Board in Geneva recently.
The conference delegates sought common solutions to tackle the issue by using real-life stories from across the world to help inform a better shared practice.
As you will see in the slideshow below, we heard many stories ranging from the experience of transgender women in India to the treatment of people living with HIV at dentists in Germany.
We hope the shared experiences we drew will help grow a better shared practice for UNAIDS and the people who really need the help.
