2016 U.N. Political Declaration on Ending AIDS a disappointing and unprincipled setback in the fight against AIDS

The Global Network of People living with HIV (GNP+) is profoundly dismayed with the decision made by a majority of United Nations member states to adopt a flawed document. The Political Declaration on Ending AIDS by 2030 was meant to provide a compass for global and national policy, law, regulation, funding and programming. It could have been an important advocacy tool for civil society to hold governments to account. Sadly, the Declaration misses the mark—by a long shot. It fails to advance the needs, interests and rights of those most affected by HIV.

Men to get HPV vaccine in new drive to combat cancer, announces health minister Jane Ellison

The first men in England have started receiving the vaccination as part of a pilot to stamp out cancers and genital disease. The scheme went live in two clinics this week and will eventually see 40,000 men vaccinated to protect them against penile, anal and other cancers.

No ending AIDS in Africa without protecting rights

Ahead of the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting (HLM) on Ending AIDS, the AIDS and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA) cautions African governments against back-tracking on their AIDS commitments and failing to protect the rights of people living with HIV, women and girls and key populations, such as sex workers, people who use drugs, transgender people and men who have sex with men.
