Commemorating World AIDS Day

aidsToday, as part of World AIDS Day, we at the Elton John AIDS Foundation are taking a moment to remember the millions of people who’ve lost their lives to the AIDS virus and to stand in solidarity with the 37 million people around the world currently living with HIV or AIDS.

In a special section of USA Today our founder Elton John reflects on how his friend Ryan White inspired him to join the fight against AIDS more than 25 years ago.  He also discusses the Foundation’s ongoing efforts to combat discrimination, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. Over the past 24 years, the Foundation has raised more than $350 million to address these issues.

In addition, our Chairman David Furnish published an OpEd on MTV/ Logo’s New Now Next homepage in which he discusses the movement behind the fight against HIV/AIDS, and how crucial it is that the work of this movement continues.

Together, we have made significant progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS ­ working hard to get more people access to the prevention, care and treatment they need. But there is still more work to be done.
