JOINT WORLD AIDS DAY MESSAGE
1 December 2015
Today on World AIDS 2015 we ask you to join us in solidarity with people living with and affected by HIV.
We all want safe, healthy prosperous lives and futures for ourselves, friends and family – and a world without AIDS is a good start. The world has committed to end the AIDS epidemic as part of the UNITED NATIONS Sustainable Development Goals and in UNAIDS we believe we can do it.
We have come such a long way in the fight against AIDS – Solidarity and global efforts have proven results. We now have better tools and more and more people are accessing treatment and prevention services. But we are not there yet… There are still people left behind due to gender inequalities, stigma and discrimination, violations of human rights and lack of resources. In our role as Goodwill Ambassadors for UNAIDS, we are proud to take a stand today and every day speaking up for change and our common goal of ending AIDS. Everybody can play their part by stepping up and joining the movement of change. We need more innovation, resources, creative partnerships and solidarity.
Support the Work of UNAIDS.
On this World AIDS Day, join us on the Fast-Track to end AIDS.
