Prison Corner at AIDS 2018 in Amsterdam
More than 5000 people including the famous film star Charlize Theron visited the Prison Corner in the networking zone of the Global Village at the AIDS 2018 Conference that took place in Amsterdam from 23 to 27 July 2018. The Pompidou Group delegation discussed with them key interventions to stop the spread of HIV behind prison walls such as medically assisted drug treatment and harm reduction. During the five days the visitors and conference attendees could stop by, grab a coffee and participate in a full programme with interactive debates, interviews and presentations. People who were incarcerated brew strong and delicious coffee for the participants and shared their stories of recovery and resocialisation. The prison corner helped to raise awareness about the risks of HIV and drug use among the most vulnerable of our societies. The Pompidou Group thanks following Prison Corner partners for their support and contributions: Aids Foundation East-West, Asian Harm Reduction Network, International Corrections & Prison Association, Health Through Walls and UNODC.
