Ongoing challenges around inequalities
The theme for 2022’s World Aids Day commemoration was “Equalise”, highlighting the importance of addressing inequalities such as the continued disproportionate number of HIV infections in women versus men – 64% of people currently living with HIV in South Africa are women.
Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, who specialises in advocating for and defending women’s and children’s sexual and reproductive rights and health, is sharing her expertise on sexuality and gender inequality with our #AfricaCentreSummerSchool students this morning. In 2020, the United Nations Human Rights Council appointed Dr Mofokeng as special rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.
