ATLAS2018, ‘I will speak, I will speak!’ by Les Enfants Terribles, is creating an overview of life with hiv and aids from all corners of the world. We are telling the personal stories that stimulate change, provide the information that helps taking us a step forward, and we are empowering individuals and communities who are standing in the front line. ATLAS2018 will run to the bi-annual aids-conference in July 2018, which will be organised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Men and women living with HIV will be the heart and soul of ATLAS2018. Their courage, strength and commitment are the strongest weapons on our way to a better future.
