On behalf of Michel Sidibé, the UNAIDS Executive Director and Under-Secretary General of the United Nations; Ban Ki Moon,the United Nations Secretary General himself, and the entire UN System in Nepal: Welcome to everyone who comes
together with compassion and determination on this World AIDS Day 2012, as we say: “Your blood, sweat and tears are changing the country, the region and the world.” The Millennium Development Goal for HIV is clear: To halt and begin to reverse the epidemic, by 2015. Thanks to the determined efforts of governments and the peoples of the land, success is in sight. We know that we can end AIDS –together. And we must!We have moved from despair to hope. Far fewer people are dying from AIDS. 25 countries, around the world have reduced their new infections by more than 50%, including Nepal. These are results we want to see in every country. Though the numbers in Nepal have been decreasing over the last years, HIV prevalence for sex workers; gay men and other men who
have sex with men; transgender people; people who use drugs, and mobile and migrant men and their partners, remain unacceptable high. We commend the government for offering free anti-retrovirals to everyone who needs these lifesaving medications. Yet, Nepal will not meet its 2015 treatment target, if we do not triple our efforts, by offering ‘testing and treating’ to our key affected populations. And this is where the role of civil society and communities becomes ever so important. Not only must government increase collaboration with civil society, it is time now that civil society takes the
initiative to engage government, by offering its support to ‘test and treat,’ and lead a revived civil society activism to end AIDS
