A message from Rev Canon Dr Gideon Byamugisha Goodwill Ambassador on HIV & AIDS, Christian Aid Convener, Global Working Group on Faith, SSDDIM & HIV
The year of the 30 th anniversary of the first AIDS diagnosis.
33.4 million people - like myself - are now living with HIV.
Who are they?
They are young and old. Male and female.
Black, white and brown. Rich and poor.
Educated and illiterate. Urban and rural.
They are, simply, human.
They are you and me.
AIDS has killed as many people as 25 tsunamis.
Leaving hundreds of thousands of orphans.
Enough is enough.
We must end AIDS before it celebrates its 50 th birthday in 2031
Before it ends us.
We each have a role to play.
