Equalize - World AIDS Day 2022

The inequalities which perpetuate the AIDS pandemic are not inevitable; we can tackle them. This World AIDS Day, 1 December, UNAIDS is urging each of us to address the inequalities which are holding back progress in ending AIDS. 

The “Equalize” slogan is a call to action. It is a prompt for all of us to work for the proven practical actions needed to address inequalities and help end AIDS. These include:        

  • Increase availability, quality and suitability of services, for HIV treatment, testing and prevention, so that everyone is well-served.
  • Reform laws, policies and practices to tackle the stigma and exclusion faced by people living with HIV and by key and marginalized populations, so that everyone is shown respect and is welcomed.
  • Ensure the sharing of technology to enable equal access to the best HIV science, between communities and between the Global South and North.
  • Communities will be able to make use of and adapt the “Equalize” message to highlight the particular inequalities they face and to press for the actions needed to address them.
