Focus on Those Falling Behind

To meet global HIV targets, the world needs to focus on countries falling behind and hard-to-reach populations—including millions affected by humanitarian crises.
Variations on that call to action echoed through coverage of the International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science underway in Mexico City July 21-24.
UNAIDS called on countries to accelerate efforts and close gaps in service to end AIDS among children and adolescents, detailing misses and gains in a new progress report released yesterday.
An amfAR, AVAC and Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria report also released during the conference shows pathways to success, detailing dramatic reductions in HIV incidence and mortality in 6 diverse settings around the world: Thailand, Malawi, Uganda, Australia, England.
“Ending the epidemic isn’t an insurmountable challenge … It won’t be easy anywhere, but it is possible everywhere,” says Chris Collins, president of Friends of the Global Fight.
