Four Thought: The world is losing the political will to deal with AIDS

Robin Gorna

Robin Gorna, who has spent 26 years working globally to combat AIDS, fears that at a time when we know how to deal with the problem, we are losing the political will to tackle it.

She sees finances drying up, and stigma, prejudice and an unwillingness to engage with social and sexual aspects of the illness preventing millions from getting access to the treatment and care they need.

Robin Gorna believes there is a real opportunity to end the epidemic, and she blames short attention spans and the wrong actions for the fact that it is still on the increase.
