AIDS 2014 Global Village
International Indigenous Working Group on HIV & AIDS
Come join us at our gathering by the water…..
The IPNZ will be a culturally safe and open space for Indigenous Peoples and their allies to meet, discuss, learn and share information.
The IPNZ will run an interactive program of events for the duration of the conference, including panel discussions, networking collaboration, collective brainstorming, presentations, workshops, video/audio resources, traditional practices and cultural performances; catering to all the diverse populations within the Indigenous cultures of the world including key populations including but not limited to the LGBT community, women and children, Elders, people who use drugs, people involved in the sex trade and families.
Other local, national and international Indigenous groups will collaborate and showcase their culture and their work including the Maori, Indigenous & Pacific Island HIV/AIDS Foundation (INA), Anwernekenhe Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HIV/AIDS Alliance (ANA), Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN), Victoria Aboriginal Controlled Community Health Organization (VACCHO), Canadian National Aboriginal Working Group on HIV/AIDS (CNAWGHA) and a new Aboriginal Youth Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS in Australia will be unveiled.
- To provide HIV/AIDS education to IAC delegates and non-delegates
- To showcase Indigenous cultures, issues and aspirations.
- To raise awareness of the IIWGHA, their mission, goals and objectives and to show others how they can become more involved.
- To showcase the work that Indigenous individuals, communities and organizations have done including HIV research, programing and the challenges they face.
- To provide a safe and comforting space where Indigenous people and their allies can gather, interact and share.
By highlighting Indigenous issues and culture, we will contribute to the recognition of Indigenous Peoples to be included in the “key populations” of HIV vulnerability that receive allocated and targeted funding globally in order to develop evidence-based Indigenous specific strategies.
