HIV+ and Transgender People as Our Colleagues Conference @ Hall -2 GWU Worker's Memorial Building
Sep 7 @ 8:45 am
HIV+ and Transgender People as Our Colleagues Conference @ Hall -2 GWU Worker's Memorial Building | Valletta | Malta

A Conference open to the general public and free admission.

ILGA-Europe has hailed Malta for its progressive and inclusive legislation, overtaking countries such as the United Kingdom and Belgium. These results were hailed by your good self as “as proof of Malta’s progression in civil rights since Labour’s election to government in 2013.”

Furthermore, Transgender Europe has released a statement saying:

Malta features strongly in the catalogue [“Human Rights and Gender Identity – Best Practice Catalogue” ]; the GIGESC (Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Sex Characteristics) Act is hailed as a best practice for legal gender recognition, and the Trans, Gender Variant & Intersex Inmates Policy is a chapter on safety and security. Malta’s LGBTIQ Action Plan, educational policy, and the LGBTI consultative council are also referenced. (TGEU, February 22, 2017)

Unfortunately, “Between January and October 2016, two new cases of AIDS and 56 cases of HIV were reported. Compared with the previous year, in 2015 there were 61 new cases of HIV and one case of AIDS.” (Grech, H., February 19, 2017). The number has spiked in the last 10 years and more people are receiving the treatment. Needless to say, many are workers who have to strive with their healthcare and stigma from society, including their workplace.

The General Workers’ Union (GWU) has worked continuously in favour of equality (including transgender or HIV+ persons) at the workplace and in our Maltese society. In view of the above, the GWU and the GWU – Youths will be organising a half day Conference regarding the subject in caption. The half day conference is envisaged to take place on Friday the 16th of June 2017, at the GWU, Workers’ Memorial Building, South street, Valletta, VLT 1103. The conference is being organised in conjunction with Malta Pride, so as to celebrate diversity and educate society about equality.

Location: GWU Worker’s Memorial Building
