Beyond Blame: Challenging HIV Criminalisation for HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE

Beyond Blame, our flagship meeting for activists, human rights defenders, criminal legal system and public health system actors, healthcare professionals, researchers, and anyone else working to end HIV criminalisation, returned for a special eve-of-World AIDS Day edition following the success of last year’s Beyond Blame @ HIV2020, which was re-imagined as a two-hour web show.

The webinar highlighted some of the successes and challenges of the global movement to end HIV criminalisation over the past year, including work on ending the criminalisation of women living with HIV for breastfeeding, and exploring whether scientific advances, such as the prevention benefit of treatment (U=U) and Molecular HIV Surveillance, help or hinder our movement.

Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, delivered a powerful closing message which can also be seen in this standalone video.

As well as the Director’s Cut in English, there are also separate versions available with French, Russian, and Spanish interpretation, as well as a playlist that contains each segment of the show (in English only) all available on HJN’s YouTube Channel.
