People living with HIV call for action now!
November 30, 2012 - This World AIDS Day, the Global Network of People Living with HIV supports
the 'Call To Action' created in Marrakech, Morocco last week by leaders from the international community of people living with HIV.
Whilst acknowledging the major gains made in the HIV response, as highlighted in the UNAIDS World AIDS Day report, this
'Call To Action' asserts that we will no longer tolerate the inequities in access to quality HIV treatment and effective
prevention, nor the blatant human rights violations that continue to be perpetrated against us, and that we must
stand together to fight these injustices.
"This 'Call To Action' is a milestone for people living with HIV," says Kevin Moody, International Coordinator of the
Global Network of People living with HIV, "It highlights the commonalities across all of our communities, and marks a
new era for advocacy for and by people living with HIV. It asks us to put aside our differences and unite over
common goals as detailed in the forthcoming 'People Living with HIV Global Advocacy Agenda', to be released
on Human Rights Day, December 10th 2012."
