Medical Discrimination Infographic

World Health Day, which falls on April 7 every year, is a chance to highlight the hurdles which stand between us and the goal of universal access to “the highest attainable standard of health.” For nearly 5 million people living with HIV/AIDS in Asia and the Pacific today, this goal can seem like a distant dream.

This infographic can help you get an idea of the medical discrimination that people living with HIV/AIDS face in Asia today.



The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs is looking for a partner organization from Hong Kong or mainland China to help implement their Young Leaders for Women’s Empowerment program. In the program, early to mid-career level participants will have the opportunity to pitch a project design, develop the project at group workshops, and then implement it in their home communities.


Attached is the official request for proposals for the Young Leaders for Women’s Empowerment program. NDI is seeking applications that share the values of gender equality, equal representation and voice in government, and are interested in bridging Hong Kong and the mainland.


If you or your organization is interested in implementing the program and working collaboratively with NDI on program design, see the link for more information. Proposals are due via email by 31 March 2014.
