World AIDS Day Message from the Secretary-General and from the UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidi Featured

Next year will mark the 30th anniversary of the AIDS epidemic.  This milestone offers a moment to reflect -- and to renew our resolve.

Over the past three decades, AIDS has caused untold suffering and death.  But another story has unfolded through the years, one of the global communities uniting with passion to take action and save lives.  These efforts are making a real difference around the world.

Fewer people are becoming infected with HIV.  Millions of people have gained access to HIV treatment.  More women are now able to prevent their babies from becoming infected with HIV. 

Travel restrictions for people living with HIV are being lifted by many countries, as stigma gives way -- still too slowly -- to compassion and recognition of human rights.

With commitment and solidarity, this movement is helping the world turn the corner on the AIDS epidemic.  We have finally reached the first part of Millennium Development Goal 6 -- by halting and beginning to reverse the spread of HIV.

We must continue to chart a new and bold path ahead.   Our common goal is clear: universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.

We must also work to make the AIDS response sustainable.   Three decades into this crisis, let us set our sights on achieving the “three zeros” -- zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.

On this World AIDS Day, let us pledge to work together to realize this vision for all of the world’s people.
