Message by UN Secretary-General Special Envoy for HIV in the Caribbean Edward Greene On the ocassion of World AIDS Day 2016


Posted in: Press Releases | 30 November 2016 | 832

    'Let's raise Hands and voices for Prevention'
     

    World AIDS Day provides the ideal occasion to join scientists, activists, practitioners and people living with and affected by AIDS around the world in celebrating the successes that we have achieved. Yet it is a time for caution against complacency that will contribute to reversing these gains. Prevention must therefore be the flagship for sexual and reproductive health and rights, age appropriate sexual education, access to condoms and pre exposure prophylactics. It must also be a standard bearer for reducing violence against women, girls and adolescents and eliminating AIDS- related stigma and discrimination.

     

    Let us raise our hands in support of PREVENTION -- to signal Justice for All. And Let us raise our voices in a global chorus for PREVENTION -- "ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030"
