There is nothing more powerful than hearing the life experiences of young people affected by HIV and AIDS to raise awareness and motivate you to take action.

That’s why each year we host the Speaker Tour – a week long journey around the UK, where you can hear first hand the inspiring stories of young people overcoming the challenges associated with HIV and using these experiences to make a positive change locally and globally.

This June, we will be taking Speaker Tour online for our first ever Speaker Tour Lockdown Edition with a specific focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the global HIV response and on young people living with HIV around the world. 

We will be joined by Grace, Dany and Sam, three young activists living with HIV from Malawi, Ukraine and the UK, who will share their experiences of being a young person living with HIV, their concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and what they are doing to respond.

We will also be joined by HIV physician and researcher Dr Rageshri Dhairyawan – speaking about global health inequalities and the medical implications around HIV and COVID-19.
