Ending AIDS Epidemic By 2030 Will Require Innovation, Technology, Partnerships

CNN: Alicia Keys: Don’t fail the children in Africa
Alicia Keys, singer, HIV/AIDS activist, and co-founder of Keep a Child Alive

“…At Keep a Child Alive, we not only strive to get more people tested and stay on treatment, we also look to address the issues that drive the HIV/AIDS epidemic, including poverty, gender inequality, and especially stigma. … With youth-specific programs, we can deliver high-quality treatment and bring young people together through education and peer-support groups within their communities, across Africa and beyond. New technology has made this work possible. … These young people grow in strength in their determination to overcome this epidemic. They’re also stepping up to help others in their communities by becoming advocates and activists. They will play a critical role in ending AIDS. … If we’re going to [end the AIDS epidemic by 2030], we will have to dramatically expand access to treatment, especially for vulnerable groups such as children and youth. That’s going to take resources. That’s going to demand innovative and creative new ideas — with the application of technology at the center. And that’s going to take partnership…” (11/10).
