Thirty years ago, the world woke up to the threat of HIV & AIDS and made a plan to fight back.
In the face of the grave threat posed by HIV/AIDS, we have to rise above our differences and combine our efforts to save our people. History will judge us harshly if we fail to do so now, and right now.Nelson Mandela
We were at crisis point but, with the backing of Governments and charities across the world, we came back from the brink.
New infections fell by 38% and people like George now know that if they do contract HIV, it is no longer a death sentence.
Is it a bad thing that I’m Positive? No. Because… I wouldn’t be stood here today. If I wasn’t, there would be one less person fighting to change the future.George Hankers
Last year the world decided that ending AIDS altogether by 2030 is a possibility. We think so too. But only if we step it up again.
Governments and charities alike have taken their eye off the ball. The number of young people dying from HIV & AIDS has tripled since 2000.
HIV is the second biggest killer of young people:
- Road Injury
- Lower Respiratory Infections
In 2000, HIV wasn’t even in the top ten.
Complacency is a killer.
Die from AIDS-related causes every day.
It’s time to fight back once again. We know what we have to do. We just need serious political will and funding to finish the job.
We’re asking the UK Government to lead the world and help us beat AIDS by 2030.
Time is ticking, but It Ain’t Over.
