Celebrating Sexual Health For Everyone

 

Welcome to the nOSCARS (NAZ OSCARS) the annual black tie celebration to highlight the programmes and volunteers making a difference in Minority Communities. The nOSCARS challenges HIV & homophobic stigma. The nOSCARS provides an entertaining evening of music, comedy, and statistics.  Last year 52% of people of African heritage were diagnosed late with HIV.1 Late diagnosis leaves an individual ten times more likely to die within a year. It is important to keep this and other sexual health statistics as the real headlines for this event. These awards are designed to encourage change makers to continue the hard work and fight for sexual health for everyone.

Celebrating Sexual Health For Everyone

 

Originally set up in in 2012 to celebrate the achievements of NAZ, the nOSCARS has grown to become one of the largest award ceremonies to highlight the programmes, people and media making a difference in minority communities, to challenge HIV & homophobic stigma.
Underneath the laughter, acceptance speeches and glamour are the statistics. They provide sobering reality of why the nOSCARS are needed; to highlight the significant gap between the sexual health outcomes of minority communities compared to the general population.
For example in 2014, 58% of people of African heritage were diagnosed late for HIV.

It is important to keep this and other sexual health statistics as the real headlines for this event, because when the party is over the real works begins across the sector to change this.
