Our week ahead


SECTION27’s “Our Week Ahead” is an attempt to share with the public, the media and our partners some of our plans and activities for the week – we hope it will give you a glimpse into our world and encourage you to join us on our journey.

This week, our preparations for the International AIDS Conference begin earnest. A highlight of the conference will be a fundraising concert by Johnny Clegg at the Elangeni Hotel on Thursday 21 July at 20:00. For more information contact Ngqabutho Mpofu at mpofu@section27.org.za 

INTERNATIONAL AIDS CONFERENCE 2016


In 2000, thousands of people from around the world marched together at the International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa. The march was a watershed moment in the global AIDS response. Sixteen years later and the conference is returning, yet the AIDS response is waning.

On Monday 18th July, once again, we will take to the streets of Durban. We are not heading toward an “end to AIDS”, unless there is a change in the current trajectory of the response. Instead, what we see on the ground is that the AIDS response is unravelling.

This is our lives. It is the lives of our brothers, sisters, and comrades that are at stake. In July 2016 at the International AIDS Conference, activists from South Africa, and around the world, will fill the streets of Durban. We are not begging, but demanding a new era in the AIDS response.

March with us in Durban on Monday, July 18, 2016 at 12pm to demand urgent action now!
