Discrimination is often based on misinformation or fear of the unknown. By looking at people in everyday situations, this year’s campaign challenges people to recognize where discrimination is taking place and to take action to stop it.
Everyone has the right to enjoy a safe and nurturing environment. Everyone has the right to good health care. Everyone has the right to love who they love.
“We will not achieve our vision for health or realize any of the Sustainable Development Goals if we do not confront discrimination” says Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS Executive Director
On Zero Discrimination Day, UNAIDS is highlighting the right of everyone to be free from discrimination.
The campaign challenges people to inform themselves about discrimination by taking a quiz and sharing it with friends and family. We can all challenge discrimination and spread the knowledge.
Ending discrimination is the right thing to do. It is good for our communities, good for the economy and good for the future.
