As a UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Asia and the Pacific, I joined a special event at the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre (TRC-ARC) devoted to the role of communities in tackling HIV stigma and discrimination against transgender people. In his opening remarks, Prof. Dr. Praphan Phanuphak, Director, TRC-ARC, welcomed Mr. Sathit Pitutecha, Deputy Minister of Public Health, Dr. Shona Wynd, UNAIDS Senior Policy Adviser. We deeply appreciate HRH Princess Soamsawali Krom Muen Suddhanarinatha, the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for HIV Prevention for Asia and the Pacific, for her continuous commitment and significant contribution to the HIV response in Thailand and in the region. Hoping we could all help and support more activities like this — swipe left! 💙
