When Nelson Mandela spoke at the International AIDS Conference in 2000 in South Africa, no one knew what the future held for the epidemic. 15 years later, the global AIDS response has been transformed. Over 15 million people with treatment, due to the initiative and commitment of government policy makers, physicians, activists and community health workers. Many of the obstacles that have impeded effective HIV prevention and treatment still exist today – Over 1 million people die every year of AIDS and 37 million people are still living with HIV.
Join CGH, the Student Global AIDS Committee and the International Medicine Club in focusing on this transformative, global issue.
