Ending HIV/AIDS Requires Continued Global Commitment

PLOS Medicine: The end of HIV: Still a very long way to go, but progress continues

“…The aspirational slogan Let’s End It suggests that the goal of ending the epidemic is in our grasp and hinges only on our collective commitment to do so. However, the remarkable progress, activism, resources, ingenuity, and sheer fortitude that have brought us this far will be needed in at least equal measure to take us to the end. Only by harnessing the maximum available resources; innovating and implementing relentlessly; and applying the fruits of these processes without prejudice to all human populations, wherever they are needed, will we be able to start imagining an end to the HIV/AIDS epidemic” (11/30).
