We’re back with another episode of (RED) Talks, our digital series of frank conversations exploring the current state of the fight against HIV/AIDS, its impact on marginalized communities, and present opportunities to shine a spotlight on the need for investment.
(RED), the organization co-founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to fight AIDS and the injustices that enable pandemics to thrive, is proud to announce the second season of (RED) Talks, sponsored by ViiV Healthcare. This multi-part, digital series of frank conversations will examine the current state of the AIDS fight, its impact on marginalized communities – including women and girls – and present opportunities to shine a spotlight on the need for investments in the AIDS fight.
To mark Harm Reduction Day (May 7th), (RED) President and COO Jennifer Lotito will sit down with Jenny Cozins, Director, Strategic Partnerships – Positive Action, ViiV Healthcare to discuss harm reduction in the AIDS fight, and efforts to reduce the risks associated with drug use that increase HIV infection rates. In 2019, roughly 10% of all new HIV infections were among people who inject drugs. If we want to end the threat of AIDS, we must stop the discrimination, stigma and spread by supporting life-saving interventions and programs that target those who are most vulnerable.
