The Munich Youth Force themes outline a supportive path for our young leaders to start and continue their advocacy.

Together, we can redefine engagement in the HIV response .

1

Together,

We Break

Barriers


Breaking barriers is about overcoming barriers in the HIV response to engage young people effectively involves addressing stigma, improving education, enhancing healthcare services, and advocating for policy changes.

2

Together,

We Build

Power


Building power and removing the obstacles that prevent youth-led organisations from being leaders of the response to HIV/AIDS. We discuss various issues, such as community mobilisation efforts gearing towards reducing stigma, promoting testing and treatment and funding capacity-building programs to empower young people. 

3

Together,

We Forge

Alliances


Lastly, 'forging' alliances is symbolic in our partnership and understanding how forming strategic alliances can help us end AIDS through cross-sectoral collaboration, pooling resources and increasing sustainable funding for youth-led movements.
