Activists Rally to Pressure U.N. AIDS Meeting for Aggressive Goals

Hundreds of activists rallied at Bryant Park in New York City then marched to the United Nations in efforts to pressure world leaders at this week’s U.N. High-Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS to announce aggressive targets for fighting global AIDS, the Housing Works blog reports. Demonstrators’ demands included funding to put 15 million people on HIV treatment by 2015, cutting tuberculosis infections in people with HIV by at least 50 percent, and eliminating new infections from injection drug use and mother-to-child transmission. Members of ACT UP, Housing Works, VOCAL and other U.S.-based groups spoke about national problems such as budget cuts to HIV/AIDS housing, the criminalization of HIV and the growing waiting lists for AIDS Drug Assistance Programs in many states.
