WRAP #23: Redefining sensational, a not so grim future and 60 seconds with Dawa Juma

Hello everyone

It’s been a whirlwind of a month with the AIDS 2014 Conference coming to town and the prep work involved for our very own special event in a couple of weeks (read on if you want to find out more).

We’re so proud of the work our sisters in the HIV/AIDS sector have done for the Women’s Networking Zone at the AIDS 2014 Conference.  It has been close to 2 years in the planning and, true to form, the WNZ has been the heart of women’s rights organising and building at the Conference. We look forward to nurturing the relationship we’ve formed with Positive Women, Straight Arrows and the many others who were on the WNZ working group.

In this issue, we question why female genital multialtion/cutting continues to be so sensationalised; rethink the future of HIV/AIDS prevention; and spend 60 Seconds with one of our Multicultural Champions, Dawa Juma, who is sure to put a smile on your face.

Until next time,
The WRAP Team
