Speech to the 11th Meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board, Geneva, 30 May 2001, by Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director
I am sure that this year will be remembered as one of the most significant in the history of the epidemic. For the first time, the global perspective joins care for those infected to the task of ensuring those not infected remain so. It is a year when resources are coming, and when political leadership is at unprecedented levels. The UN General Assembly Special Session on AIDS will be one of its high points.
