Noerine Kaleeba’s 2014 Address: Building Resilience – Challenging Stigma Lessons from Uganda

Since Father Michael was unable to attend in person, he nominated two prominent international HIV/AIDS advocates to speak in his place.

The first of these was Dr. Noerine Kaleeba – Ugandan physiotherapist, activist and educator, Co-Founder of The AIDS Support Organisation (TASO), and Vice-Chair of the Ugandan National Health Research Organisation.

Dr. Kaleeba spoke around key issues relating to stigma in HIV, and lessons learned from her home country Uganda, in a deeply moving, personal, and inspirational address. You can view her full lecture below, preceded by an introduction from Irish Aid’s Douglas Hamilton.
