AIDS at the public sphere: Advocating for the rights of people living with HIV
The project aims to increase awareness and protect the rights of people living with HIV/ AIDS in Greece. The project is essentially a platform for cooperation of the three organizations dealing with HIV/AIDS in Greece (Positive Voice, Centre for Life & PRAKSIS), who are also partners in this project. It involves a systematic monitoring and intervention in the media, communication with state agencies involved in policies relating to HIV, the protection of human rights of both HIV-positive individuals and groups who are at higher risk and training through seminars-workshops of key opinion leaders (journalists and government officials) in order to raise awareness and change their behavior and policy towards the matter.
