“We have won many great battles against HIV, but we must continue fighting. Now, we must take advantage of lessons learned, scientific advances, and all available resources to achieve total success. Our aspiration is a new generation without HIV, a world without AIDS."
José Luis Martínez-Almeida, Mayor of Madrid
Community Leadership Messages
"The HIV response has been one of the most important clinical successes of humanity, but it has also greatly failed community. We can only end the epidemic hand in hand with affected communities. As signatories of the Paris Declaration, we have the opportunity to end AIDS, guarantee basic rights to people living with HIV, and ensure their active participation; thus, mitigating stigma and utilizing the HIV response as an engine for authentic social transformation."
