During the event “Crossfire: A dialogue between youth leaders and decision‐makers to answer the tough questions on HIV and young people” young leaders had the chance to address their questions about HIV and AIDS related topics to international politicians. Latoya Cadogan from Barbados, Mawethu Zita from Barbados, Milinda Rajapaksha from Sri Lanka, Nadim Abou Alwan from Lebanon and Magda Pochec from Poland took the chance and “interrogated” ministers and parliament members from different countries.
