Problem statement:

In addition to representing a staggering public health crisis, HIV & AIDS is also fundamentally a human rights issue. People living with HIV face legal and cultural discrimination, and too often, are unable to get what they need to stay healthy. It is our responsibility, us youth, to ensure they have access to physical and mental health care. It is our mission to advocate against policies which stigmatize people living with HIV, and make sure every person among them is cared for and valued.
