Mic: “We’re nowhere close to the end”: Stigma and politics stand in way of U.N. goal to end AIDS
“In 2016, the United Nations General Assembly set an ambitious goal: End the global AIDS epidemic by 2030. … While eradicating AIDS … is a lofty and worthy goal … [t]here are still a number of challenges on the road to the post-AIDS world envisioned by the U.N. … Some of [the challenges] are longstanding — discrimination chief among them. … A lack of political will and global conflicts that result in refugees and drug resistance also complicate the effort to eradicate HIV/AIDS…” (Lutz, 6/8).
