International AIDS Conference 2008 Report, Mexico City

The International AIDS Conference in Mexico City, August 3-8, 2008 provided an important opportunity for JASS activists to understand, face-to-face, the politics and actors dominating global decision-making on HIV/AIDS and to make their voices heard at this important international gathering. The JASS delegation was comprised of seven Southern African activists, five Mesoamerican activists – including two journalists from JASS’ strategic partner, Feminist International Radio Endeavor (FIRE) based in Costa Rica – and three members of the JASS crossregional team.

The action-packed time in Mexico included important speaking events by two Africans on panels at the official conference, a popular JASS workshop featuring the Africans’ digital stories, presentations and participation in many small workshops and various meetings.
