Facilitated by Winnie Sseruma from the United Kingdom (UK), this session will explore the Vital Voices Leadership Programme, a leadership programme for people living with HIV (PLWH): African Diasporas in the UK. The project involves work with the media and key decision-makers in an effort to provide a platform for PLWH to take part in key decision-making, influence research, and inform policy. Participants will be able to take part in key learnings from the project and share ideas for improved approaches to empowering and involving PLWH and affected communities. The workshop will explore the potential for global developments of this model and discuss future collaboration across borders - and among migrant populations, in particular.
