Key takeaways from Gilead Rainbow Academy 2023

Stigma remains the Achilles’ heel in ending the HIV epidemic as it drives discrimination and inequity across sectors of society, including healthcare, education, workplace and justice systems.

Themed “Creating a Stigma-Free Asia: Collaborating for Equity in HIV”, the Gilead Rainbow Academy aims to deepen our understanding to intersectional socio-structural factors that impact HIV-related stigma and inequity.

The Academy explores how public-private-community collaboration can overcome the remaining roadblocks in stigma, and health equity in Asia to achieve the UNAIDS’ Fast Track 95-95-95 and Zero Discrimination targets. It also seeks to reinforce the connectivity of HIV change makers – from frontline workers, activists to community-based organizations (CBOs) – strengthen relationships with like-minded organizations/ individuals, and in turn, accelerate efforts to end the HIV epidemic by 2030.
