A future without AIDS - Realising a vision

A future without AIDS - Realising a vision

Bern, 11 April 2013. A world without AIDS is feasible. This conviction is shared by many people and NGOs in the Global North, South and East as well as multilateral organizations such as UNAIDS and the Global Fund. An end to the AIDS epidemic is in sight, mainly due to better access to drugs that can both treat and prevent HIV. Progress over the past decade has cut the death toll and helped stabilize the number of people infected with HIV. There is hope that in the future no child is born HIV positive, as it is in Switzerland largely realized.

Today we stand at a historic turning point. But this is no time to relax. In order to realize a world without AIDS it takes the commitment, dedication and cooperation of all: Political decision makers North, East and South, multilateral organizations, NGOs North, East and South, local communities and people living with HIV.
