Each day, 273 children die of AIDS. Each week, more than 6000 young women under 25 years become infected with HIV. The risk of acquiring HIV is 21 times higher for sex workers. Worldwide, only 62% of people living with HIV is accessing treatment.

Our generation has the ability to stop one of the largest epidemics in history in its tracks. The time to break down persistent barriers that hinder worldwide prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS is now.

Communities first

Directly supporting communities that are at the highest risk of HIV infection is the most effective approach. When communities have space, capacity, and resources to mobilise, great strides can be made. Communities themselves hold governments accountable, remove barriers to HIV prevention and treatment, fight injustice and inequalities, and ensure the most vulnerable groups are included in the HIV response. Invest in communities now! The communities covered in our work are children, LGBT people, people living with HIV, people who use drugs, sex workers, women, and young people.
