In reaction to remarks today by new World Bank President Jim Yong Kim at the International AIDS Conference in Washington, DC, Oxfam spokesperson Dr. Mohga Kamal-Yanni said: "President Kim's pledge to fight AIDS by building health systems that deliver for the poor and expanding social safety nets is the right approach.

Michel Sidibé, executive director of UNAids, says although the end of the epidemic is in sight, millions of people are still at risk The end of the Aids epidemic is in sight, with scientific developments that will allow millions to be treated and prevent the spread of infection, but delegates at the International Aids Conference opening in Washington heard that poverty, gender inequality, homophobia and prejudice and funding shortages still put millions more at risk. Michel Sidibé, executive director of UNAids said in his opening address that for the first time, more people are on treatment than need it – 8 million of 15 million – and the trajectory of infections had been broken with a worldwide decline of 20% since 2001. However, he said, "It is outrageous that in 2012, when we have all the tools to beat the epidemic, we still have to fight prejudice, stigma, discrimination, exclusion and criminalisation, not only in homes, but in streets, police stations and courtrooms. This is ...
