Message from UNDP Administrator Helen Clark on World AIDS Day
Dec 1, 2014

Early diagnosis and treatment is vital too. These lessons have been learned in the fight against HIV. If the AIDS epidemic is to be ended as a public health threat by 2030, the sense of urgency and commitment to human rights which drove the early days of the response cannot be lost.
