About 55 journalists – including myself – from 41 countries arrived in Mexico City the week before AIDS 2008 – the XVII International AIDS Conference, invited by the National Press Foundation (NPF). We are participating of the Global Media Training Program on HIV/AIDS, a NPF’s Journalist to Journalist Program.
The training includes four days of lectures, practical activities, discussion with the organisers of the AIDS 2008, and a visit to Clinica Condessa, a clinic specializing in services for people living with HIV/AIDS, in preparation for the big conference.
A taster in advance of the big meeting starting this Sunday…
