Hope in action: Community-led efforts to end GBV and HIV

July 16 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In the lead up to the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2024), join us for a film screening and panel discussion that explores the impactful work of community-led organizations addressing gender-based violence (GBV) and its intersections with HIV.

Two short films will showcase the successes and challenges of community-led organizations working to prevent gender-based violence and support survivors in Malawi and Botswana. After the film screening, leaders from these two organizations and a third organization will answer audience questions and discuss what they’ve learned through work at the forefront of the HIV response.

The panelists will consider:

· What seemingly intractable challenges have they been able to make inroads on through their approaches to community engagement and holistic support?

· How does their positioning as community-led and community-based organizations impact the work they do and the successes they have?

· What are the intersections between gender-based violence and HIV in their communities?

· How do their staff and volunteers cope with the direct and vicarious trauma that they experience through this work? Have their organizations been able to support mental health and well-being of staff and volunteers? What else is needed?
