The Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR), in cooperation with Women Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR), the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW) and members of the More Than Our Status Campaign, are pleased to welcome submissions from young and passionate activists to raise awareness about the experiences of young women and girls living with HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights in their communities.
We invite young people (12-29 years old) to submit original writing and artwork to our Watchdog publication on the theme of “Stories by and experiences of young women and adolescent girls* living with HIV”.
*Please note: all youth who identify as women, transgender, transfeminine, gender-variant, and genderqueer are invited to submit.
This Watchdog will focus on the experiences and lives of young women and adolescents from diverse parts of the world who face discrimination, but also experiences of every kind, in relation to their everyday lives living with HIV. The Watchdog will be launched on World AIDS Day on 1st of December 2015.
As well as being considered for inclusion in the upcoming YCSRR Watchdog, selected submissions may be featured on the YCSRR website and/or used during the YCSRR social media campaign during World AIDS Day. Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “HIV Watchdog Submission” no later than November 1st, 2015.
Please see the full call for submissions ( The-Watchdog-Call-for-Submissions.pdf) for further details.
