World AIDS Day Communities Make the Difference This World AIDS Day – At Home and Around the World
Patty Aguilar | 29 November, 2019, 07:40

This year, the Joint United Nations (U.N.) Programme on HIV & AIDS is organizing around the theme, "Communities make the difference". While admirable progress has been made, it is not enough, and we must continue to work toward a vaccine and a cure.

For instance, thanks to the courage of people living with HIV and civil society, the price of antiretroviral medicines has been brought down significantly - resulting in 24.5 million of the 37.9 million people living with HIV now on HIV treatment.

"I have seen many of my HIV positive friends have children". To date, (RED) has generated more than $600 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, where 100 percent of money donated goes directly towards HIV/AIDS programmes in sub-Saharan Africa to ensure that it reaches those most in need of the funds. The film features eight individuals who are living with HIV, including Sue from UK, Alco, 43 from Holland and Harun, 32 from Turkey, and aims to highlight that with 1.7 million men, women and children newly infected with HIV in 2018, the fight to end AIDS is far from over.

According to World Health Organization statistics, there were 36.7 million people with HIV worldwide at the end of 2018, of which 79 percent had been diagnosed, 62 percent on treatment, and 53 percent had reduced their HIV levels through sustained treatment, substantially reducing the risk of transmitting HIV. Through their words and actions, these activists inspire us to continue working to end HIV & AIDS once and for all.

American leadership in the global response to HIV/AIDS is clear and as strong as ever through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Communities are also delivering HIV prevention and treatment services, advocating for the removal of punitive laws and policies that hinder the HIV response and providing data through community-led monitoring of health services and systems.

On World AIDS Day, we are reminded that no challenge can defeat the unyielding American spirit.

Anxious about the sustainability of the fight against HIV infection and control in the country, the lawmaker argued that in a situation where funding partners pull out of the country, private sector involvement in raising the needed fund to support government at the Federal and state levels would become imperative.

Sunday, December 1 is World AIDS Day, a day dedicated to education and testing related to the disease.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-seventh day of November, in the year of our Lord two thousand nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.
