Welcome to the 21st issue of the ARASA newsletter.
In this second edition of 2015, we give you a brief update on one of the most important dates on the ARASA calendar, the Annual Partnership Forum (APF), which was hosted in April 2015. We also introduce you to this year’s ARASA HIV, TB and Human Rights Award winner.
Further, we present an update from the ARASA supported HIV, TB and Human Rights Training and Advocacy Programme hosted by SAfAIDS in Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwe Chapter of the Pan African Positive Women’s Coalition also reflects on the sexual and reproductive health needs of women living with HIV, with specific focus on cervical cancer and access to treatment.
The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) is commemorated annually on 17 May. In this edition, we include a contribution from Diana Mailosi from the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ), who reminds us all to stop redefining, renaming and recreating hate.
Should you have any questions, comments or contributions for future editions of the newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
