UNESCO message for the World AIDS Day

Message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, on the occasion of World AIDS Day, 1 December 2015

2015 is the year to identify progress in halting the spread of AIDS and HIV and gaps that still need to be bridged.

Last July, it was announced that the HIV-related targets of Millennium Development Goal 6 –- to halt and reverse the spread of HIV and AIDS, and ensure access to antiretroviral therapy for 15 million people -- have not only been achieved but exceeded. 

Research shows that if the global community accelerates the response over the next five years, it may be possible to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
