This World AIDS Day Finds Us at a Crossroads

Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA)

This World AIDS Day marks a promising and unprecedented point in a quest begun nearly four decades ago to end the global public health threat of HIV through science and solidarity. Increasingly, effective and essential technologies, medicines and measures to effectively treat the virus and prevent transmissions are finding their way to where they are needed most and are demonstrating that we have what is needed to end this pandemic. For the first time, the United States has developed a plan aiming to end the American epidemic. And in keeping with hard-earned knowledge as well as with the theme of this World AIDS Day, communities are at the center of ambitious responses. Still, this World AIDS Day finds progress stalled by policies and politics that threaten the momentum we have gathered.
