On 7 December, the Love Alliance launched its Global Advocacy Strategy for 2022 to 2025 Speak out for Health and Rights during the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA).
As the 21st International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) in Durban, South Africa comes to an end, so those key populations throughout the continent that are most affected by the policies and funding directed towards the eradication of HIV/AIDS by 2030 have come together on the sidelines of ICASA2021 to draft and sign the Durban Declaration.
Love Alliance is committed to protecting, promoting, and fulfilling SRHR globally. Our five-year programme aims to achieve a significant reduction in HIV incidence by influencing policies, organising communities, and raising awareness on rights and health in Morocco, Egypt, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and South Africa. The Love Alliance occupies a critical space in promoting SRHR by unifying marginalized populations in a strong pan-African activist movement, led by young people, and bringing local voices to a global audience to influence decisions that affect their rights, health, and lives.
We’re very proud to report that the FEMALIVE Commemorative Silent Walk on Friday 26th November in Cape Town was an unqualified success, and achieved it aims of raising the call for an end to violence against women who use drugs, and against Gender-Based Violence, just as the Global 16 Days of Activism Against GBV commenced for its 2021 campaign.
