Panel discussion 4, Ending AIDS (8-10 June 2016) #HLM2016AIDS - General Assembly, High-Level meeting
Leaving no one behind: ending stigma and discrimination through social justice and inclusive societies.
Vulnerability to HIV and the impact of HIV is fuelled by stigma and discrimination and exacerbated by unequal access to social goods and services. This panel will explore the opportunity offered by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to realize the vision and commitments to advance the principles of equality and inclusion and achieve the health targets for people living with, affected by and at risk of HIV.
The High-Level meeting will focus attention on the importance of accelerating the response to HIV over the next five years to set the world on course to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
United Nations Member States are expected to adopt a Political Declaration on Ending AIDS to scale up the pace of progress and reach a set of time-bound targets.
