Youth Against AIDS celebrates Pride in Tel Aviv with Gilead Sciences Published on:


Youth Against AIDS followed the invitation of Gilead Sciences to the Tel Aviv Pride. As the main sponsor of the Youth Against AIDS activities in the context of AIDS 2018, the company supports the association, enabling young people around the world to engage in an enlightened society. Above all, Gilead sees a huge importance in the role of the youth in international prevention, which is why the company supports Youth Against AIDS in its campaign for the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam.

In Tel Aviv, the chairman of the Youth Against AIDS board, Daniel Nagel, had the opportunity to discuss the role of the youth in the fight against AIDS with Douglas Brooks, Senior Director for Community Engagement at Gilead Sciences.

After that, YAA and main sponsor Gilead Sciences were represented at the Tel Aviv Pride, which celebrated its 20th anniversary as the city’s first gay pride. More than 250,000 visitors traveled through the streets of Tel Aviv with rainbow flags and posters, and through their participation they campaigned for more rights for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals.

Like many other participants, Youth Against AIDS actively participates in the work for more acceptance and equality in society. This year’s Pride was themed “Community Makes History,” which illustrates the shift from a discriminating society to an enlightened and equal society.

The international education initiative Youth Against AIDS (YAA) strengthens the role of the youth in the fight against HIV / AIDS. As official partner of this year’s International AIDS Conference (AIDS2018) in Amsterdam, YAA invites youth activists from all over the world to stand up for the concerns of their generation. Gilead Sciences supports the activities as main sponsor.
