World AIDS Day petition for national leadership on HIV
Posted on: November 12 2010, 05:08 pm

This World AIDS Day, demand national leadership on HIV

By the end of 2011 there will be more than 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK, but the current national strategy for HIV and sexual health in England expires at the end of 2010 and there are currently no plansto replace it.

The UK has made a UN commitment to have a HIV strategy in place which:

- demonstrates political leadership
- is properly financed [/li][/list]
- is genuinely multi-sectoral and cross-departmental [/li][/list]
- promotes human rights [/li][/list]
- confronts stigma and discrimination
- effectively meets the need for high quality HIV prevention, testing, treatment, care and suppor


This World AIDS Day, NAT is calling on the Prime Minister to fulfil this commitment and put in place from 2011 a national strategy to combat HIV, in collaboration with the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (where strategies are in place).


To add your voice to our campaign, visit the campaigns page at World AIDS Day website at http://www.worldaidsday.org/Do-Something/Support-our-campaigns.aspx and follow the links to the e-petition.

NAT looks forward to your support on this campaign for UK-wide leadership on HIV.   We ask that you encourage your own networks, supporters and friends to sign the petition also.
