“For me HIV is more than a disease; it is an injustice. With everything we know from 40 years of this pandemic, the science, the drugs, the prevention tools, no one should be infected by HIV and no one should die from AIDS related causes. We can end the ugly inequalities driving HIV! We have all the tools to prevent and treat HIV and enable people to live long and healthy lives. If we do the right thing, we can end the injustice of AIDS.
