GSD: Module Three



module one imageModule 3: Advocates Panel

[T]he principles of good public health demand that we strive to reach all affected populations with core HIV services even – and, I would argue, especially – when facing difficult cultural contexts, severe stigma and discrimination, or challenging security environments
—Ambassador Deborah L. Birx, M.D., U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator


This panel session offers participants a chance to:

  1. Meet inspiring members of local LGBT communities who are ready to engage in programmatic work
  2. Solidify an understanding of the concepts covered in Module 2
  3. Hear recommendations for health and human rights programs
  4. Ask questions about gender, sexual orientation, and local issues in a safe environment

What does it include?

  • Two members of local LGBT communities and one human rights expert will each tell their story.
  • The three panelists describe what they each believe to be the key challenges, success stories, and priorities for engaging with gender and sexual minorities in that country.
  • 30-40 minutes are reserved for questions from the audience
