In the fight for access to optimal HIV treatment, the true power to influence change ultimately lies with those people most affected by HIV. Now is the time to invest in these communities and strengthen their capacity to demand, monitor, and work with others to achieve their right to optimal health. ITPC has and continues to make impressive progress in this area.
We achieved these wins in a harsh environment, with depleting resources and a small, but dedicated team. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our amazing and progressive donors who know the value and impact of strengthening the capacity of affected communities.
Our work investing in communities is more relevant than ever. By educating people living with HIV about their rights, which is at the core of all our programs, we light a fire that fuels demand for justice. We build a spirit of activism that grows out of the rage of knowing that we have been short-changed by our governments, the duty bearers, who are meant to uphold our right to health and life.
