The Stop AIDS Campaign – who are we?
The Stop AIDS Campaign is an unprecedented initiative of the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development, bringing together more than 60 of the UK’s leading development organisations, trade unions and HIV and AIDS organisations. Launched on World AIDS Day 2001, the campaign works to raise awareness in the UK about global HIV/AIDS epidemic and to campaign for urgently scaled up international action.
We are campaigning for comprehensive universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support with no one left behind. We are striving for a world in which peoples’ human rights are respected. Discrimination that prevents certain groups of people from accessing services is stopped and the rights of people living with HIV and AIDS are fully respected.
In 2005 world leaders promised to provide Universal Access to HIV prevention, treatment care and support by 2010. Yet, thousands of people are still dying every day of AIDS-related illnesses, unable to access the essential services they need to stay alive.
We share in the UNAIDS vision of Zero Discrimination, Zero New Infections and Zero AIDS Related Deaths, but due to a lack of financial and political support we could see this dream slipping away from us. With your help, we can build the foundations of a world without AIDS.
A world without AIDS is possible. Together, let’s make it a reality.
