“We have proven that science can bring solutions in short time, we proved that governments can bring together resources,” Bynayima said.

‘The COVID pandemic has made political leaders aware of how vulnerable we all are, how it shuts down economies, we must renew the momentum to fight AIDS.’

She is therefore cautiously optimistic that the same can be done to end the HIV pandemic.

It has been 40 years since the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) first reported on the then mysterious immunodeficiency disease on June 5, 1981.

Next week, the UN plans to launch a new appeal for donations at an AIDS summit in New York.

In the past 40 years, nearly 35 million people have died from complications of AIDS.

“Those lives matter, like the ones taken by Covid,” Bynayima said.
