- Speech to the 16th Meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board by Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director (en | fr)
As we enter 2005, it is clear that one truism about AIDS remains as valid as ever: this is a rapidly evolving epidemic that demands an equally rapidly evolving response. This new phase in the global response will be marked by the hard work in front of us, to build more effective and genuinely harmonized action that is built on country leadership and needs. The facilitation and brokering role of UNAIDS is crucial to achieving this – and the Programme Coordinating Board is crucial to UNAIDS.
