GNP+ shocked at the passing of Community Activist, Andrew Hunter

GNP+ is shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Andrew Hunter, a leading activist and advocate in the sex worker and PLHIV community. Andrew’s knowledge, skills, passion and tireless commitment for fighting injustices, both in the Asia Pacific region with APNSW and globally as President of NSWP has brought our two communities together and has provided fellow activists a model for advocacy in the HIV response today. His contributions to advocacy around access to medicines are inspiring and will continue to motivate others to action in the future.

The thoughts of the GNP+ staff and board members are with Andrew’s partner, his friends and colleagues at this time.

NSWP will collect and post tributes to his life and work on a memorial page on the NSWP website, if you have memories to share please email them to secretariat@nswp.org
