dancingYesterday, Sunday 17 July, Daniela Zelaya from World YWCA facilitated a workshop on Safe Spaces for young women living with HIV at the Youth Pre Conference. The other delegates from the World YWCA also actively participated in the Youth Pre Conference where young people came together to engage in sessions, workshops and many other activities on addressing stigma, creating spaces for youth and adolescents, and a closing plenary affirming faith communities’ recommitting to joint efforts to overcome the HIV and AIDS epidemic.

Every young person has the right to a healthy and fulfilling life, free from discrimination and fear – no matter your HIV status, your gender or age, sexual orientation or gender identity, what you do, who you love, or where you’re from – it’s everyone’s right!
