Speech by Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director, World AIDS Day event, Durban, 1 December 2008
My friends - it is an honour and a pleasure to be with you here in Durban on World AIDS Day. We are here because we have reasons to celebrate and causes for concern. Last time I spoke in this stadium was in 2000, at the 13th International AIDS Conference. I will never forget seeing small, frail Nkosi Johnson standing on this stage, nor the bold words he spoke.
