Let's Talk about HIV

Learn more about HIV – LGBT+ History Month

AIDS continues to pose one of the most challenging threats to public health. While major scientific advances have made it easier than ever to prevent and treat AIDS, access to therapy is not universal, and prospects of curative treatments and an effective vaccine are uncertain. Currently, 37 million people are living infected with HIV, the etiological agent of AIDS. HIV has caused more than 35 million deaths worldwide, so let’s get to know how the enemy functions so we can fight against it!

The theme of 2019 LGBT+ History Month is “Peace, Reconciliation, Activism” - as part of “Activism”, we are thrilled to welcome Irati Antzin, our proud ally and a PhD student in the department of Infectious Diseases, to our society for a presentation on her findings regarding the replicaton of HIV-1, and a discussion of the current prevention and treatment strategies.

Via this presentation, we are hoping to raise more awareness about HIV!

Biological and social issues, as well as to continue spreading the correct information about HIV, against existing misconceptions.

At the end of the presentation, we would also like to devote some time in discussing associated social problems caused by HIV.

Sebastian Yihong Li, Your LGBT+ Society Welfare Officer
