stigma 2013On Friday, November 22, TWC is speaking out and up with women on the issue of stigma! 

We will be sharing the perspective of women living with HIV who experience stigma and will be providing positive images of women of color living with HIV to counter stigma. Stigma results in isolation, hopelessness, and has damaging effects on health.

The agenda features Keynote speakers Jeanne White Ginder, mother of Ryan White, and Darius Mans, President and CEO of Africare. Community Activists, Government Representatives, and Scientific Experts from USA (including Puerto Rico), and Uganda, the Caribbean, and more will be featured in an entertaining format.

The 2013 International Stigma Conference will be held at Howard University’s Blackburn Center, in Washington, DC, USA on November 22, 2013, from 8am to 5pm.
