Following recent statements by UNAIDS and other global stakeholders expressing concerns that the COVID-19 epidemic is being used to target marginalized and criminalized populations, FCAA joined the Global Philanthropy Project and UHAI-EASHRI to start a discussion on what this means for the lived realities of our communities and the global response to HIV and AIDS.

We invite you to join FCAA, GPP and AGAG for this 1-hour FCAA Connect webinar to discuss how the manipulation of state of emergency and health policy laws are being used to abuse the human rights and health of the LGBTQI and sex worker communities. How do funders respond in this time of increasing and competing needs?

We will be joined by speakers that will share how funders are responding on the ground in East and West Africa. The webinar will also offer time for open dialogue.

This webinar is only open to representatives of funding or philanthropy serving organizations. 

Speakers

  • Caroline Kouassiaman, Executive Director, ISDAO
