This morning at 11 a.m. ET, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be delivering a speech at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on HIV/AIDS. We hear she’ll be outlining the progress we’ve made to-date in the fight against AIDS over the last 30 years, and will be delivering a global call to action that will generate momentum ahead of World AIDS Day on December 1.
The NIH might seem like an unlikely location for a State Department-led speech, but we think that means she’s likely to highlight all of the exciting new science and data that’s emerged over the last year, offering new tools to prevent HIV infections.
Ultimately, we hope she outlines a vision for how, with the Administration’s support, we can bend the curve of the pandemic and get to the beginning of the end of AIDS by 2015.
You can watch her speech live in the player above, and I’ll be tweeting along at @Global_ErinH. Stay tuned after the speech, too, for an official statement from ONE’s leadership.
