Reaching Zero: Translating commitment into action, speech by UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé on the occasion of IAPAC HIV Treatment Summit
Today, we can say that treatment is possible, people are living better quality lives and we are seeing less death because of the revolution that brought these medicines to people. We are seeing declines in mortality rates in many places. Malawi can say that they quickly increased the number of people on treatment, and today have seen an almost 50 percent reduction in AIDS-related deaths. So we have truly moved from despair to hope.
