MAKE SOME NOISE FOR ZERO DISCRIMINATION ON 1 MARCH 2017

 

February 22, 2017

This year we are calling on everyone to make some noise for #zerodiscrimination. Individuals and communities can join voices and transform the world. Zero Discrimination Day is an opportunity to highlight how everyone can be part of the transformation and take a stand for a fair and just society.

Under international human rights law, countries have a legal obligation to address discrimination in health care and the workplace. They are also obliged to refrain from withholding, censoring or misrepresenting health information—for example, stating that use of condoms does not prevent the spread of HIV and other sexually transmissible infections is not permitted.
