On Wednesday 11th May the APPG launched the The People Living with HIV UK Stigma Index report in Parliament. Stephen Doughty MP, Vice Chair of the Group hosted the event which saw more than 2 year’s of collaboration between Public Health England and the HIV community, supported by the FPA. The report outlines in detail the stigma that continues to affect people living with HIV in the UK.
Youth STOPAIDS believe there is nothing more powerful than hearing the true-life experiences of people affected by HIV/AIDS and TB.
That is why every year students from across the globe travel to the UK to speak at different events about their experiences of living with HIV.
The speakers' powerful stories give a unique context to the key issues affecting People Living With HIV throughout the world, particularly access
to affordable and appropriate medical treatment.
