A new report from UNAIDS claims that AIDS can be ended worldwide by 2030. The UN’s plan to end AIDS includes investing in HIV prevention, implementing non-discriminatory health laws, and making treatment readily available to communities and countries that are disproportionately affected by HIV. The UN states that strong political leadership and cooperation between countries are integral in reaching this historic goal. Beyond saving millions of lives, eradicating AIDS will also increase progress towards achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals on a global scale. If world leaders commit to the UN’s plan, the end of AIDS could be a reality in the next seven years.
