The Curious Sex Workers Guide to attending the 18th International AIDS Conference

21/12/2009 at 15:14 Leave a comment

The XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010), will be held in Vienna, Austria, from 18 to 23 July 2010. It is a chance to assess where we are, evaluate recent scientific developments and lessons learnt, and collectively chart a course forward. The conference organisers also see it as an opportunity to highlight the critical connection between human rights and HIV.

In the past the conference has provided a forum to hear about new HIV initiatives for sex workers, participate in campaigning and advocacy for sex workers rights and hear about cutting edge research related to sex work.

In order to help facilitate sex worker involvement the Global Network of Sex Work Projects has produced The Curious Sex Workers Guide to attending the 18th International AIDS Conference. The Guide provides information on:

  • Submitting an abstract
  • Participating in the Global Village
  • Scholarships
  • Travelling to Vienna
  • Getting support for attendance

For further information contact the NSWP IAC 2010 Coordinators Faika El-Nagashi and Veronica Munk on iac@nswp.org.
