To­gether, we can rein­vig­o­rate trade, fi­nance, tech­nol­ogy and in­vest­ment as pos­i­tive forces to end poverty and leave no one be­hind. This is a day for all of us to set a col­lec­tive goal we can all work to­wards - that of bet­ter­ing the lives of peo­ple around us. Af­ter all of the saved and im­proved lives thanks to pre­ven­tion, treat­ment and care; af­ter all of the bat­tles won against prej­u­dice and ig­no­rance about this dis­ease; af­ter all of the won­der­ful mile­stones achieved, AIDS is still the num­ber two cause of death for those aged 10-19 glob­ally – and num­ber one in

Africa.
