UNAIDS’ most recent report shows how many countries are on the path to end AIDS and are currently succeeding. Some of these countries also include Botswana, Eswatini, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
“Efforts to end AIDS succeed when anchored in strong political leadership. They follow the evidence; tackle inequalities holding back progress; enable communities and civil society organizations in their vital roles in the responses and are supported by sufficient and sustainable funding,” Ms Byanyima said.
She added saying this path to end AIDS requires collaboration if it is to happen. The UNGA 78 will take place between 5-26 September with the vital topics being debated during the High-Level week (18-26).
Furthermore, this is the week where UNAIDS will join world leaders, global experts, human rights defenders, environmental campaigners and activists.
Here, they will discuss and tackle the most pressing challenges the world faces today, including ending AIDS.
“At UNGA 78, we need renewed global energy to end AIDS. That energy must be led by world leaders, including committing to providing political and financial support to advance the fight against AIDS,” Byanyima said.
She also added that the AIDS movement is one of the greatest assets for global progress.
“The end of AIDS is not an alternative to investing in other challenges, it is how other challenges can be overcome.”
