SURVIVORS OF YAHYA JAMMEH’S COUNTERFEIT
AIDS ‘CURE’ DEMAND JUSTICE
WHAT: Three survivors will discuss the appalling abuses they suffered while confined within the fraudulent “treatment cente” operated by former Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, who coerced at least 9,000 Gambians living with HIV into receiving his herbal “cure” between 2007 and 2017.
The survivors will be joined by two lawyers from the international advocacy organization AIDS-Free World, who are helping to pursue justice for victims of one of the most egregious orchestrated assaults on people living with HIV in the history of the global AIDS crisis.
