Community Forum Statement:
“The change we want to see…”
Caroline Thomas (Indonesia) & Gurmit Singh (Singapore)
We, the communities of People Living with and affected by HIV, representing Women and Lesbians, Drug users, Youth, Sex workers, Men who have sex with men, faith groups, and Migrants organized and conducted 8 separate community forums on 7th and 8th August, to consolidate our learning and take stock of progress as we prepared for the 9th ICAAP.
More than 1200 of us actively participated in discussions to deepen our understanding and share our knowledge, drawing upon our skills experiences, and expertise as Community Leaders. Such a high turnout is unprecedented, and illustrates how all of us remain committed to the ambitious task we have set ourselves - to reclaim our lives and confront the challenges facing us.
