Hivos and its partners will be out in force at the International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa from 18 to 22 July. The theme of the conference is Access Equity Rights Now”. It will bring together more than 20,000 experts, policy-makers and activists from all over the world working in the field of HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment and advocacy.

After years of intense debates, the Human Rights Council adopted the historical resolution on “Protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity”, including the mandate to appoint an Independent Expert. This represents a huge breakthrough in the struggle for human rights for all groups.

From 2010 to 2015, Hivos was involved in CoCooN (Conflict and Cooperation over Natural Resources in Developing Countries), a WOTRO-financed programme dedicated to finding new ways to end the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. CoCoon brought together scientists, indigenous leaders and environmental activists from several Amazonian countries to conduct research.
