Zero Discrimination Day
No one should ever be discriminated against because of their age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, language, health (including HIV) status, geographical location, economic status or migrant status, or for any other reason. Unfortunately, however, discrimination continues to undermine efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world. Many people face discrimination every day based on who they are or what they do.
“We will not achieve our vision for health or realize any of the Sustainable Development Goals if we do not confront discrimination.”
Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS Executive Director
