GAPW releases the abstract of the publication “Responses to AIDS in Brazil: enhancing the debate III (Annals)” (2019)

With a gathering of 38 enriching interventions, the publication “Responses to AIDS in Brazil: enhancing the debate III (Annals)” is the third seminar-based collection of a series that ABIA has been holding since 1999, called “Enhancing the Debate”. These seminars are interdisciplinary, interregional, and intersectoral and seek to disseminate information, strengthen the mobilization and participation of the Brazilian society to respond to HIV. It fits in with ABIA’s intent to capacitate key (governmental, civil, academic, and medical/health) sectors in dealing with HIV/AIDS by facilitating its understanding in all its aspects, but also, in a time of uncertainties for the future of an exemplar policy success to address the epidemic, it serves as an act of political resistance.
