On 21 July, 2018, on the sidelines of AIDS 2018, a global partnership of safe abortion, HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) organizations will host Our bodies, Our fight: Uniting the movements for HIV/AIDS and safe abortion care. This half-day event will bring together more than 200 prominent global advocates and decision-makers across the HIV and safe abortion spaces to discuss shared strategies and strengthen joint advocacy to address barriers to rights-based health care – with a focus on the champion countries of Brazil, India and South Africa. Together, participants will chart a path forward for collective advocacy to promote global policies and programs that uphold dignity and bodily integrity.
