Achieving an AIDS-Free Generation

Dept. of Health & Human Services
December 1 marks World AIDS Day. Today, tens of millions of people with HIV are now living healthy, productive lives because of access to safe and lower priced medicines. We rejoice in this achievement, because all people, no matter how rich or poor, deserve to have the medicines they need to live their lives in the best health possible.
At the same time, we still have a ways to go – both here in the United States, and around the world. As we spend time recognizing the progress we have made on this journey, this is also a time to redouble our sense of urgency both at home and abroad – so that we can achieve the goal of an AIDS-Free Generation.
Across our Department, scientists researchers and many others are working in concert to raise awareness, combat complacency, and expand access to critical services to communities all across our country, including communities that are at a high risk and communities that have traditionally been underserved.
Overseas, our Department is working through PEPFAR to help on a number of fronts – working directly with Ministries of Health in our partner countries to strengthen things like clinical care, laboratory capacity and regulatory regimes.
We can truly see in our future an AIDS-Free Generation because of the wide availability of prevention and treatment tools.
We hope you take a moment on this World AIDS Day to educate yourself on this important health issue and get the word out to others.
