In July 2022, Stephen Lewis Foundation staff travelled to the 24th International AIDS Conference in Montreal using Aeroplan points. We gathered with HIV activists, funders, and decision makers, and supported important HIV advocacy.
The SLF and Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) convened foundations and philanthropists to share our Call to Action for anti-colonial funding of HIV-related community-based care, and our five funding principles to support community-led organizations and shift power into their hands.
Representatives from many of our African community partners were also in Montreal. These activists and leaders shared their first-hand knowledge of how to address inequalities and deliver effective HIV programming with the global audience of conference attendees. We were thrilled to once again connect in person!
