Dear AIDS Activist

Thank you for your dedication to improving the lives of people living with HIV infection and to efforts to end an epidemic that has gone on far too long. The work you do is even more impressive now, when HIV/AIDS is no longer the cause célèbre it once was and our red ribbon has joined a growing rainbow of good causes and works....Today, the science of HIV can greatly benefit from your true co-production. That means actually demanding to help create research, not just be a mostly mute study team member whose presence allows a box to be check-marked. In an increasing number of research networks, patients are at the drawing board, designing and implementing research. How ironic it is that in HIV research, where the roots of such co-production can be found, we are behind the times.

PEPFAR strategy to focus on 13 countries close to controlling epidemic

The United States will concentrate its resources on 13 countries with high levels of HIV that have the best chance of controlling the AIDS epidemic under a strategy unveiled on Tuesday. President Donald Trump’s administration requested the program be cut by $1 billion earlier this year but the Senate Appropriations Committee voted last week to keep funding largely unchanged at roughly $6 billion.

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
