World AIDS Day
Today is World AIDS Day. UNICEF is launching For Every Child, End AIDS: Seventh Stocktaking Report on Children and AIDS.
As the number of people accessing life-saving drugs for HIV has risen, there has been an increasing sense that the end of AIDS was near. But for children and adolescents, the situation remains grave – and there is no end to AIDS without them.
Since 2000, nearly 9 million lives have been saved, with 17 million people living HIV receiving treatment. However, HIV is still present in many parts of the world. We must keep working until we have achieved an AIDS-free generation!
