Young Women: Bridging the Gap in the Response to HIV/AIDS

April 8, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - April 9, 2018 @ 12:00 am

Young Women







The Amsterdam Youth Force and CHOICE have the pleasure to invite you to our next event: Young Women: Bridging the Gap in the Response to HIV/AIDSa two-hour panel discussion on the topic of women and HIV/AIDS. Considering that specific groups of women and girls are disproportionately affected by HIV, it is vitally important for our generation to create a dialogue where underrepresented populations have a chance to share their experiences to educate as well as inspire and uplift.


Next Sunday night, 8 incredible female panelists from diverse backgrounds will come together to engage with the audience in an interactive manner by creating a safe and open space. The dialogue will center around sharing lived experience concerning sexual pleasure, education, fighting stigma and encouraging inclusion within the current HIV/AIDS discourse.


Among the speakers:

  • Linda-Gail Bekker, President-elect of the IAS, Deputy Director of the Desmond Tutu HIV Center and Professor at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
  • Sharon Lewin, Director of the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity in Melbourne, Australia.
  • Anke Van Dam, Executive Director AFEW International
  • Ashily Dior, HIV Counselor and Tester AHF Amsterdam
  • Amanda Mariga, ShivA’s Positive Sister
  • Velvet, Lesbian Escort De Stoute Vrouw

Join us for this incredible opportunity to hear and be heard and share this invitation with friends and peers!


We highly encourage youth to participate!
