It's Vital Our City Plays Its Role in Tackling Stigma and Wiping out This Disease Forever; Mayor of London Sadiq Khan Gives His Support to Our AIDSFREE Appeal and Explains Why This Week's Global Forum in London Is Vital in the Battle against HIV


Byline: Sadiq Khan

AN HIV diagnosis used to be a death sentence but this is no longer the case. We have made great strides in medical research, minimising the impact the virus has on people's day-to-day life but there is still so much more to do.

Taking bold steps like this is exactly what is needed, which is why I have set an ambitious target of achieving zero new HIV infections, zero preventable deaths, and zero HIV-related stigma and discrimination aiming to wipe out Aids in our city by 2030.

Yet, regardless of the progress we are making in London, a global effort is the only way we will ever truly be able to end the Aids epidemic for good.

Through working with other cities we will be able to share invaluable expertise, do more to halt new infections around the world, and ensure people get the treatment they need, while at the same time making progress to end discrimination and stigma. …
