First, we need all partners to come together in global solidarity as never before.
That is the only way to truly provide universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and
care by 2015.
Second, we have to lower costs and deliver better programs.
Third, we must commit to accountability.
Fourth, we must ensure that our HIV responses promote the health, human rights,
security and dignity of women and girls.
Fifth, we must trigger a prevention revolution, harnessing the power of youth and
new communications technology to reach the entire world.
If we take these five steps, we can stop AIDS. We can end the fear. We can stop
the suffering and death it brings.
We can get to an AIDS-free world.
Ban’s vision calls forth an ambitious goal: zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. I am glad to see that ridding the world of AIDS is a priority at the UN. Now large companies, medical centers, and communities must rally together to make Ban’s vision come true.
