World AIDS Day 2013: “Getting to Zero: HIV & Adolescents”

November 23, 2013


Building on from last year’s “Getting to Zero” theme, this year it is HIV and adolescents who are the focus. The “Zero” campaign will continue until 2015, echoing the UNAIDS vision:

Zero new HIV infections

Zero discrimination

Zero AIDS-related deaths

The decision to choose “Getting to Zero” as the theme came after extensive consultations among people living with HIV, health activists and civil society organizations.

“The potential for creative, connected and meaningful campaigning is really exciting” said World AIDS Campaign Africa Director, Linda Mafu. “Our organization will focus on Zero AIDS Related Deaths, but the choice is there for others to pick a different zero or all three. It’s time to use our imaginations and let everyone know that Getting to Zero is a must” she added.
