Make 2015 the Beginning of the End of the AIDS Pandemic
- by: ONE (OLD)
- recipient: President Barack Obama
The world has made incredible progress in its efforts to fight HIV/AIDS, but we are a long way from declaring victory: nine million people are without treatment, more than 370,000 children are infected each year and new infections still outpace the number of people placed on treatment by nearly 2:1.
Today we have amazing new tools to prevent HIV, but we must recommit ourselves to the fight and to specific, measurable goals: ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV, treatment for the 15 million people who need it and drastically reducing new infections.
Thirty years ago, the first documented cases of HIV/AIDS were seen as an untreatable death sentence. But years of amazing work and research changed that prognosis completely, and today we can do it once again.
Call on President Obama today to make a bold plan to end HIV and AIDS, so that one day we'll look back and mark 2015 as the beginning of the end.

Please lead on a bold, new plan on global AIDS this World AIDS Day -- a plan that will increase the number of people on treatment, support the Global Fund, drastically reduce new HIV infections and ensure that no child is needlessly born with HIV.[Your comments will be added here]
