Mohammad Nasser, 27 Jordan

The Law and AIDS

Mohammad believes that his initiative, The Law and AIDS, can change the prevailing stigma toward HIV/AIDS and ensure that Jordanian law respects and protects individuals with the disease. His project has already hosted awareness-raising events, created an informational video featuring a speaker and his experience with AIDS, and trained 25 lawyers in understanding the legal violations committed against those with AIDS. These and other achievements have broken the silence around the virus and led to revolutionary media discussions. Mohammad will continue to spread awareness among Jordanians about the AIDS virus with the goal of putting an end to the stigma and discrimination surrounding the disease.
