New Health GAP analysis published on emboldening the fight to win the end of AIDS--and combatting austerity
Asia Russell's chapter "Funding the fight to end the AIDS epidemic: instructions from a time of austerity" was published as a in the new 2014 issue of AIDS Today, released at an International HIV/AIDS Alliance event at the London School of Economics last week.
Health GAP is proud to be part of the first edition of The Alliance's new biennial publication presenting the global state of the civil society response to AIDS.
In Russell's chapter, she describes the untenable contradiction civil society is faced with: the possibility that communities can secure massive gains in saving lives and halting new HIV infections based on aggressive scale up of evidence based interventions and defense and promotion of human rights, while in reality budget cuts are leaving life saving programs running on empty.
Confronting this political doublespeak and winning the resources to seize this promise requires emboldened and dauntless activism, according to Russell. Read Health GAP's prescription for action--and the roadmap for urgently needed progress--here.
