“It’s now the day after World’s Aids Day. Before we forget and move on, let us pray for the day when there is no one one more life whose memory will be added to the quilt. #respect
Now more than ever, this year’s World AIDS Day marks unprecedented progress toward ending HIV/AIDS and providing proof that investments in research, treatment, and prevention are yielding lifesaving dividends. While there still remain significant challenges in achieving a world without AIDS, we now have roadmaps to get us there. This week, the U.S. Department of State released the “PEPFAR Blueprint: Creating an AIDS Free Generation,” and last year, the United Nations signed the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS, which is a global strategy to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care by 2015. These documents are historic milestones and underscore that we are at a tipping point — the beginning of the end of AIDS.
