On January 30, 2019 representatives from six key cities are to meet in London with one goal in mind — to fight a disease that has claimed some 36 million lives to date. The AIDSfree Cities Global Forum marks the conclusion of the Foundation’s AIDSfree campaign with the Evening Standard and The Independent, yet also the continuation of the global efforts to reduce the burden of HIV in cities across the world.
Key figures in the battle against AIDS will gather in London for a unique global forum which aims to drive down HIV rates and achieve the target of ending the epidemic.
The global forum is a prelude to the Fast-Track Cities Global Summit to be held in September 2019, when delegates from across 275 Fast-Track Cities will convene as the first global gathering of cities and municipalities accelerating their local HIV responses to end AIDS as a public health threat.
In January, leaders, doctors, NGOs and activists from across our #AIDSfree cities will gather to discuss how each of the six campaign cities will turn the tide and end this epidemic. People living with HIV and those working on the front line as service providers will also have a platform to share first-hand the impact of the projects and the urgent need for support to continue.
