Access to ART’s remain limited, especially in developing countries where out of 7.1 million only 28% are receiving treatment. The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness of this issue by sending a clear message that PLHIV worldwide are coming together in unity to support their peers and fight for the needs of future generations. This is our generations’ purpose…
The Towards Zero Together campaign is designed to raise awareness of several issues impacting on the lives of PLHIV, by sending a clear message that PLHIV worldwide are coming together in unity to support their peers and fight for the needs of future generations.
This campaign aims to get as many PLIHV from all over the world together to walk as one and raise awareness about the many barriers still faced by some worldwide, such as the great discrepancies in accessing life-saving treatment, and a lack of empowered non-Western voices.
A group made up of HIV advocates and activists from around the world will walk 220 km, starting in Brussels on 15 July, and ending at the Towards Zero Together AIDS 2018 March on 23 July 2018.
By walking 220 km across borders and ending at the International AIDS conference, PLHIV are not just advocating for equal access to treatment for all, but are also proving to the wider community that they can do anything they put their minds to and are not held back by this virus in any way.
“Today’s ARVs does not only improve the quality of life of PLHIV but they are also a key tool in ending transmission. Getting all PLHIV on treatment ASAP not only just makes sense, it actually an incredible effective method to end HIV”
