Annual Letter – International AIDS Society (IAS), Switzerland, March 2017

12 pp. 3.9 MB

If 2016, with faltering prevention efforts and worrying funding trends, was a wake-up call to the HIV/AIDS community, 2017 must be the year of resolve to confront the challenges head-on, according to the International AIDS Society Annual Letter. Owen Ryan, IAS’s executive director, urges greater cooperation between HIV/AIDS and other communities: the TB community, gearing up for the first UN High-Level Meeting on TB; reproductive health and rights advocates coping with the Global Gag Rule; and the hepatitis and cancer communities as well.

Is the progress we have made against the greatest pandemic of our time slipping through our hands?”
