ONE issues warning to African leaders attending IAC: Step up fight against HIV and AIDS or risk millions of lives

ONE - "Two-decades of progress towards defeating HIV and AIDS will be undone unless African Governments and the international community immediately step up their efforts to fight the disease, anti-poverty group ONE will warn delegates attending the International AIDS Conference in Durban this week. Millions of lives are at risk because the year-on-year drop in new HIV infections has stalled, delegates will be told. (...)

Mwambu Wanendeya, Africa Executive Director for ONE, said: “Africans and the rest of the world will learn this week if our leaders in Africa are serious about beating the scourge of HIV/AIDS.

“Investing 15% of their national budgets on health would not only save millions of lives, it would prove that we are all taking this problem seriously.”
