HP+ Staff Recognized for Outstanding Contributions in HIV Response
December 5, 2017
Over the past several months, HP+ staff have received notable recognition for their contributions to combatting HIV and promoting human rights.
On World AIDS Day, Jamaica Country Director Sandra McLeish was presented with an award from the Jamaican Network of Seropositives for her years of service in, and outstanding contribution to, the HIV and AIDS response in Jamaica, and for uplifting people living with and affected by HIV. HP+ Jamaica has recently worked with the network to strengthen the country's anti-discrimination system for HIV and update the Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention Training Modules—a curriculum by and for people living with HIV.
In October, HP+ Senior Associate Ryan Ubuntu Olson was named to the Clinton Global Initiative University's Honor Roll—a prestigious list that recognizes individuals for their dedication to taking on complex challenges and finding innovative ways to make the world a better place. Ryan's inclusion on the honor roll came as a result of his work on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex issues, which includes his work with HP+ on gender and sexual diversity. His participation in the Clinton Global Initiative University's Honor Roll was recently reported by the Washington Blade.
