APCOM’s AIDS2020 Pre-Conference Speaker

Mary Ann Torres

With over three decades of experience in the field of human rights and AIDS policy, Mary Ann Torres has worked at ICASO in a number of capacities over the past twenty years, currently as its Executive Director.  ICASO’s mission is to mobilize and support diverse community organizations and networks to create and sustain effective responses to HIV.

Under her leadership, ICASO has strongly focused on advocacy for human rights and gender equality, holding governments and international institutions accountable for responding to the HIV epidemic, and promoting community sector involvement and community- and rights-based responses in the fight against HIV.

Most recently, she has co-led efforts to address the complex humanitarian emergency in Venezuela, in particular supporting Venezuelan NGOs to document the health crisis in the country and has released a series of reports entitled Triple Threat drawing on interviews with Venezuelan people living with HIV, TB and malaria, doctors, advocates, academics and United Nations representatives.
