To ensure a more sustainable, equitable and just response to HIV, it is imperative that gender justice and health equity are always included as essential parts of our approach. Protecting and promoting gender justice and health equity presents both challenges and opportunities that should be leveraged to better inform a holistic response. Through a facilitated and interactive high-level panel discussion of policy makers, funders, activists and programmers, this special session will also honour the legacy of a global champion of both, Prudence Mabele (1971- 2017). As a trailblazing activist for the rights of women and people living with HIV, Prudence embodied both of these aspects in all of her work. With the inaugural presentation of this new multi-year endowment in tribute of her life and work, the Prudence Mabele 2018 Prize recognizes a recipient who embodies these values and who was selected from public nominations earlier this year. The Prudence Mabele Prize will ensure that her legacy lives on and that unseen champions of gender justice and health equity are celebrated.
