  • 2016 is fast winding down and for many people the thought is: this year can’t be over quickly enough. It’s been a wild one. Human rights and health care seem more imperiled than ever as a result of political changes in many parts of the world, including here in the US where the core AVAC team is located.

  • Saturday, December 10 was Human Rights Day—the annual commemoration of the UN adoption, in 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As frequent readers of this blog know, AVAC isn’t always convinced that “days” for topics or issues can change the world. But we know to our core that human rights—every day—are essential for progress in HIV and every other health issue.

  • Having worked on voluntary medical male circumcision rollout in Kenya, HIV prevention research advocate Simon K'Ondiek saw how important comprehensive community engagement was in the success or failure of the project.

  • Every year on World AIDS Day, December 1, we pause to take stock. We take stock of how much energy goes into “days” that note this issue or that one—and of how little attention HIV gets, relative to its ongoing impact in so much of the world, on other days. This year, many of us will also be considering how to move forward in a world where acceptance, equality and a commitment to human rights are under threat.
