Ending AIDS, realizing rights

SNAPSHOT | #HLM2016AIDS - "In the past 15 years, global progress against AIDS has been significant. Yet achievements have been unequal. Throughout the world, stigma, discrimination and exclusion, as well as imbalanced power and gender relations, continue to make women and girls, young people and key populations vulnerable to HIV and hinder access to HIV prevention, treatment and care services.

Sustained and rebounding AIDS epidemics in many contexts and regions, such as the Middle East and North Africa and eastern Europe and central Asia, are fuelled by punitive laws, policies and practices that deny access to effective services to the people who need them most, including key populations."

"The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides an unprecedented imperative and opportunity to expand rights-based HIV responses and strengthen links with human rights, social justice and rule-of-law movements. Leadership at all levels and across sectors must rise to the occasion.”
Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary
