But these battles are not only happening in the U.S. We talked to colleagues and allies about abortion rights in Nicaragua, Mexico, the Philippines, and Zimbabwe – and what that means for people who need to access the full range of reproductive care.

Dear Stephen Lewis,

Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to attend the International AIDS Conference in Mexico City. This meaningful experience provided us with the chance to get to know the political dynamics of HIV/AIDS face to face, and to be able to speak for ourselves as women affected by HIV/AIDS.

Sincerely,
JASS

I sit here in Harare agonising, and wishing I had the same courage our Swazi sisters have. The fear is just paralysing!!
