Live the Promise: HIV Campaign

The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (now an ecumenical initiative of the WCC) has campaigned on HIV and AIDS for over 14 years, advocating for access to treatment, eradication of stigma and discrimination, elimination of root causes of vulnerability to HIV transmission, and fulfillment of commitments by governments, intergovernmental organizations, religious leaders, faith organizations and individuals. Much progress has been made during this period to extend access to treatment, reduce transmission, improve education, and coordinate resources. But AIDS is not over – and political will to sustain progress and scale up effective responses that could eliminate HIV in the next generation seems to be faltering.
