2015, 2016 AIDS Conferences Could Be Revolutionary In Efforts Against Epidemic

Huffington Post: HIV Prevention on the Line: Time to Mobilize — Again
Mitchell Warren, executive director of AVAC

“…The 1996 and 2000 [AIDS] conferences [in Vancouver and Durban respectively] are by many accounts the two most significant global AIDS meetings that have ever taken place. And it is possible, if the right steps are taken, the right funds committed, the right programs implemented, and the right partners engaged that the 2015 and 2016 meetings could prove to be watershed moments in the field. … Today the AIDS response is poised at another moment that could be a revolution, providing that it does not dissipate into rhetoric or dissolve into underfunded documents and plans. … Let’s use the memories of those who did not live to return to Vancouver and Durban — as well as our own memories and histories — to fuel the continued fight for lasting change” (3/25).
