Statement at the UN General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS by Dr Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director, New York, 10 June 2008
I take the floor today to speak on behalf of UNAIDS’ ten Cosponsoring agencies. As the Secretary General’s report shows, we are now finally seeing real results in almost every region. Results many once said could never happen – because of denial or because there wasn’t enough money, because health systems were too weak, because they didn’t think people would take their medication on time. Just imagine what would have happened if we had waited to resolve all these issues: where would those three million people who are now taking antiretroviral treatment be now? Most would not be alive today.
