African and Black Diaspora Global Network
on HIV and AIDS (ABDGN)
Let’s work together to sustain momentum for an inclusive global movement that acknowledges the shared disparities and vulnerabilities to HIV/AIDS amongst African, Black, & Caribbean migrants and people in the Diaspora at AIDS 2014.
ABDGN’s mission is to strengthen the global response to existing and emerging HIV and AIDS epidemics amongst African/Black/Caribbean (ABC) migrant and Diaspora communities living in the Global North.
Using a human rights-based approach, ABDGN aims to be the lead global voice on issues linked to HIV/AIDS and ABC populations, including strategies to address health inequality, stigma, and discrimination.
As a “network of networks” ABDGN links local knowledge and capacity to address HIV/AIDS by and with ABC communities to global health and social policy agendas to end HIV/AIDS. ABDGN includes global representatives from organizations in Canada, the United States, Jamaica, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia.
