Be a change agent: Getting to Zero

The ITF is calling on its affiliates to mark World AIDS Day on 1 December 2012. As we mark 32 years of AIDS, let’s be inspired by the early days of AIDS activism. AIDS has proven to be much more than an epidemic—it is a movement that has inspired people across the world. This movement is more important now than ever. The beginning of the end of AIDS is now in sight. Keeping in mind the World AIDS day theme for 2011-2015, we must get to Zero new HIV infections, Zero discrimination, Zero AIDS-related deaths. It is our shared vision and our shared responsibility, in memory of the millions who died of AIDS but also for future generations.

Like in previous years, this year the ITF will focus its campaign on “zero new infections and zero discrimination”. We encourage everyone to be a “ Change agent” and start the plan from now, develop linkages and collaborate with local and national organisations to intensify the momentum to achieve our objective of “getting to zero”.
