Home / What does NTAHC do? / Advocacy

NTAHC can advocate on your behalf

NTAHC can speak or write in favor of you; support or argue for you, on your behalf, if you feel wrongly treated and we agree that it's unlawful or wrong. Here's some examples:

  • 'I came out as a Sistergirl on my community and some people bashed me up''
  • I told my workmates I was HIV positive and they asked me to not use the shared kitchen'
  • 'I told the doctor I am a sex worker and he treated me like scum'
  • 'I went to get some sterile syringes and the health workers looked at me like I was a bad person'
  • 'I went to get PEP at the Emergency at the hospital and they judged me for having sex without a condom'
  • 'I told my Dad that I was a lesbian and he kicked me out of home'
  • 'The doctor wouldn't give me medication when he saw my track marks'
  • 'The doctor didn't understand the difference between HIV and AIDS'

You don't deserve to be treated like that.
