HIV Prevention Literacy: Remembering What We Have Learned

In recent years, there has been an emphasis on universal solutions to curb the HIV epidemic, such as Test and Treat, and PrEP. By themselves, these approaches do little to address the social and structural drivers of the epidemic: poverty, gender inequality, stigma, violence, criminalisation, and homo- and transphobia. Increasingly, slogans and targets substitute for education and community action, excluding key populations from leadership in the response. This panel at the International AIDS Conference 2016 will discuss the progressive narrowing of the global HIV prevention agenda and its damaging effects, arguing for a focus on HIV prevention literacy to respond effectively to the epidemic.
