Political Leadership, Full Financing Critical To Achieving AIDS-Free Generation

Huffington Post: This Is the Way to Beat AIDS
Julio Montaner, director of B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS

“…The world has now come to agreement that we need to provide treatment as early as possible (regardless of CD4 cell count level) to those living with HIV. … Meeting the [U.N.’s] 90-90-90 target by 2020 will ensure that AIDS incidence, premature mortality, and new HIV infections will decrease by 90 percent by 2030 (from 2010 levels). Doing so would put us on a path to ending AIDS as a pandemic disease by 2030. … To reach an AIDS-free generation, we will need political leadership, which should translate into full financing of the 90-90-90 target…” (7/23).
