Press Release: President Bill Clinton Recommits to Achieving Universal Access to AIDS Prevention and Treatment

Earlier today at the opening plenary session of the 18th Annual International AIDS Conference, President Bill Clinton applauded the world’s progress to date in fighting AIDS and recommitted to achieving universal access to AIDS prevention and treatment. In his speech to more than 25,000 conference attendees, President Clinton reminded the audience that while the global community’s progress has been great, now is not the time to walk away from fighting HIV/AIDS.

"We’ve ramped up and we’ve done a good job, but now we need to transition from an emergency response to something that is sustained," President Clinton said. "We cannot get to the end of this epidemic without profound changes to funding and the way we spend it. I will do my part."
