CHLP Executive Director Honored

The National HIV/AIDS Partnership has recognized CHLP Executive Director Catherine Hanssens with a Red Ribbon Leadership Award for Policy. In a ceremony on December 1, World AIDS Day, Hanssens was among the recipients honored for superlative leadership

In a conference of international human rights advocates connected with the 2006 International AIDS Conference in Toronto, most of the organizational representatives agreed on the importance of new analytical and advocacy tools, including facilitated access to experts and expertise in HIV human and civil rights issues; and new mechanisms for information sharing, such as a web-based resource center. CHLP received mention as a potential model for future international systems. We are excited for the acknowledgment of Catherine’s contributions to the future of HIV advocacy.
