End Stigma, End HIV: World AIDS Day 2021
This Zoom webinar with Kellan Baker, Dázon Dixon Diallo, and Pastor William Francis aired December 1, 2021, as part of the "Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World" series. Watch a recording in the player above.
America is 40 years into the AIDS epidemic, and although the development of effective treatment has the potential to end the spread of HIV, progress is impeded by persistent stigma and discrimination. Reinforced false ideas of who is at risk and discouragement from seeking treatment keep the epidemic going. Activists and grassroots organizations, historically and today, have stepped up to educate the public, fill the void of care in their communities, and work to overcome stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS.
During this World AIDS Day program, hear from those working tirelessly to eliminate stigma and listen in on a conversation on how to make AIDS a pandemic of the past.
